10:06 Fred Allen – Untold Story
Sir Fred Allen is the oldest living All Black – a former captain who coached the team unbeaten through 37 matches from 1966 to 1968, when Chris Laidlaw was playing for his country. Now 91, Fred has produced his memoirs – written by long-time friends Alan Sayers (95) and Les Watkins (81). There’s a lot of history in this story – but Fred is also looking forward and reckons if the AB’s don’t win the Rugby World Cup this year, they never will.
Sir Fred’s biography, Fred the Needle, by Alan Sayers and Les Watkins, is published by Hachette.

We replay this interview today as a tribute to this much loved and respected New Zealander.
