All Blacks rugby ball

This signed leather rugby ball was given to the Pātea Primary School by the 1967 All Blacks.  The 1967 New Zealand rugby union tour of Great Britain, France and Canada was a tour undertaken by the New Zealand national rugby union team (the All Blacks).  The series consisted of seventeen matches, four of Test status against international opposition. The New Zealand team finished the tour undefeated, the first time they had achieved this in the Northern hemisphere since the 1924–25 Invincible team.
