Photographer's Note

San Siro, Milano - 14 November 2009
Italia vs New Zealand
Test Match.

Azzurri is the Italian plural form of azzurro, light blue (or literally azure).
Light blue was the official color of the Savoia family, Italy's monarchs until 1946.
For this reason azure is the color usually worn by Italians in sport events.


The 1884 New Zealand tour to Australia was the first overseas New Zealand rugby tour, and featured clothing far different from today's jersey. Back then, the team donned a dark blue jersey, with gold fern on the left of the jumper. In 1893 the NZRU stipulated at its annual general meeting that the uniform would be black jersey with a silver fern and white knickerbockers. However historic photographs suggest white shorts may have been used instead during these early years. Sometime between 1897 and 1901 there was a change; by 1901 the team met NSW in a black jersey, a canvas top with no collar, and a silver fern.
