Why I’ll never wear an All Blacks jersey

I love New Zealand. I love the country, it’s beautiful. Snowy mountains, lush vistas and open plains (Shadowfax, let us show them the meaning of haste!), I mean have you seen Lord of the Rings! Stunning, stunning! And also that, Hobbiton’s in New Zealand. HOBBITON! But I’ve yet to set a single toe in that country. It is not mine.
