The first New Zealand touring side to travel abroad went to New South Wales in 1884 and won all 8 games, which included three games with a New South Wales Representative side. 167 points were scored to 17.

However, first New Zealand touring side under the auspices of the New Zealand RFU, visited New South Wales & Queensland, Australia in 1893. However, this side was still not fully representative of New Zealand as three unions were not included in the selection (Otago, Canterbury & Southland they joined the NZ union in 1895). Despite this, the tourists won 9 out of 10 games (168 points to 44).

The first New Zealand touring side under the auspices of the New Zealand RFU, visited New South Wales & Queensland, Australia in 1893. However, this side was still not fully representative of the greater New Zealand since three unions were not included in the selection i.e. Otago, Canterbury & Southland (they joined the NZ union in 1895). Despite this, the tourists won 9 out of 10 games (168 points to 44).

The first used term ALL BALCKS was used in the UK

The "Express & Echo in Devon appears to be the first to use the term All-blacks when it recorded the day the 1905 touring side beat Devon 55-4 in their first game, "The All Blacks, as they are styled by reason of their sable and unrelieved costume, were under the guideance of their captain (Mr Gallaher), and their fine physique favorably impressed the spectators".

By 11 October the Daily Mail by Buttery, had also picked this up and reference "All Black" play and its complement, "All Black Cameraderie". From then on the new name gradually won acceptance, so much so that by early November, following the match with Surrey (1 November), the Daily Mail made direct mention of the All Black team "that everybody is talking about".
