100 Years tells the story of the New Zealand Māori 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, and Australia and throughout New Zealand, and it is illustrated with over 200 images.

There have been no books specifically written on Māori involvement with rugby league, until now. 100 Years is about players, administrators and whānau. It’s about the fabulous moments, the glories of victory and the agonies of defeat, and it gives a comprehensive story of Māori participation in rugby league.
