Is this really the best All Blacks side ever?

South Africa coach Heyneke Meyer is convinced that this is the greatest All Blacks team in history

Heyneke Meyer was in no doubt, Graham Henry a little less certain yet still pretty sure. But if this is the greatest All Blacks side in history, and victory against Australia on Saturday would mean it is pretty hard to argue with, how many of the probable starting XV against the Wallabies would make it into an all-time New Zealand side?

Comparing the amateur and professional era always has its pitfalls and for that reason, and the absence of sufficient material, the Invincibles of 1924-25 have not been included meaning there is no place for George Nepia, Bert Cooke or Maurice Brownlie. It is a subjective exercise, designed to provoke thought, debate and no doubt no little uproar.
