For the third day of the Erasmus Sport Week, we would like to celebrate the great rugby team: the All Blacks!

The All Blacks’ myth has born by accident: in particular, it has been created by a typo. In 1905, the New Zealand national rugby team joined the European tour and won every match. While in Paris, a British journalist was shocked by the energy and the speed of the team and he reported that the New Zealanders played as if they were "all backs". However, the printer thought to a typo and he added an “L” to the nickname: that's how the name of All Blacks' originated and it's stuck ever since.
