100 Years: Maori Rugby League 1908-2008 tells the story of the New Zealand Maori Rugby League Team from its origins in 1908 to the present day. The book covers major matches, along with biographies of prominent players and administrators. A rich collection of stories and interviews with former players tells the reader what really happened off and on the field. The book has been thoroughly researched with information coming from England, France, Australia and throughout New Zealand, and it is illustrated with over 200 images. There have been no books specifically written on Maori involvement with rugby league, until now. 100 Years: Maori Rugby League 1908-2008 is about players, administrators and whanau. It's about the fabulous moments, the glories of victory and the agonies of defeat, and it gives a comprehensive story of Maori participation in rugby league.
