All Blacks reveal locker room secrets at Gaming Expo

Ever wondered what goes on behind the changing room doors when the All Blacks prepare for international games? And what happens when they head back to the sheds as the winners – or even worse as losers?
 
All will be revealed when former All Black and respected commentator Grant Fox puts one of the most capped All Black No 15s of all time, Mils Muliaina in the hot seat at the New Zealand Gaming Expo in Auckland next month.
 
As well as a reservoir of funny stories about All Black tours, Grant Fox has a special insight into the subject of building a winning, high performance team.
 
Fox and Muliaina make an appearance at the end of the first day of the NZ Gaming expo in a pre-networking event in which Fox will be comparing notes with Muliaina on how things have changed, or not, in the All Black camp in the last twenty years. And he’ll be asking the question we all want answers to – what’s the AB’s plan for winning the World Cup.

Editor’s Note:

  • The New Zealand Gaming Expo is the New Zealand’s premier showcase for the best available equipment and most recent developments in the New Zealand gaming market.
  • Grant Fox made his international debut on 26 October 1985 against Argentina in Buenos Aires when he was 23. He had 46 test caps when he retired seven years later and he’s remembered for his scoring talent needing only six games to reach one hundred points for the All Blacks. By his 12th game he had overtaken Don Clarke’s New Zealand point’s record of 207. He has been on the coaching team of both Auckland NPC and the Blues franchise.
  • Mills Muliaina is one of the most capped All Black No. 15 of all time. The Samoan-born, Invercargill-bred Full Back is a veteran of two World Cup campaigns and with 21 test tries for the All Blacks he is among the top 10 test try scorers for New Zealand. Mils made his debut for the All Blacks at 23 and since standing in for Richie McCaw in 2009 has occasionally captained the side.
