TLA appointed by New Zealand Rugby for 125th Anniversary Match

The match will see current World Champions, the All Blacks, celebrate the 125th anniversary of NZR with a special commemorative game against the Barbarians at Twickenham on Saturday the 4 th of November, for the opening game of their 2017 end-of-year Northern Tour. It will be the first time the All Blacks have returned to Twickenham since winning the Rugby World Cup in 2015.

As the event agency, TLA’s role will be to organise and deliver all aspects of the match, and it is a continuation of a strong working relationship between the two organisations. Previous matches organised by TLA in partnership with the New Zealand Rugby include the two sell out All Blacks matches in Chicago, against the USA in 2014 and Ireland in 2016.

The game will mark the 11th time that the Barbarians and the All Blacks have played in their history. The All Blacks have won seven of the previous outings, with the Barbarians winning on two occasions and one draw. The All Blacks last played the Barbarians in 2009 and will be looking to avenge a 25–18 loss in a match that saw South African Bryan Habana score a hat-trick of tries.
