All Blacks and their loves on holiday

The boys head off for some well earned rest and relaxation. We're not jealous at all!

It’s been a long and gruelling 12 months for the All Blacks. The Lions tour in June/July saw the biggest year for the AB’s outside of a World Cup.

With their clean sweep of the End of Year Tour to England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales our boys deserve some rest and relaxation. And what better way to do it than to whisk their loved ones off to exotic places.

From Asia to the Pacific and as far away as the Bahamas, they’re all where we’d rather be right now as we cram out as much work as we can before Christmas.

But the holiday has to end some time, right? They all have to be back in Auckland tonight for their last official All Blacks duty of the year – the Rugby Awards.

At least they’ve got the pictures to look back on.
