Make All Blacks To The Nation Great Again

The now-traditional day where the All Blacks visit school kids and sponsors' offices is great. But it could be so much better.

Here are ten ways to create much more meaningful connections between New Zealanders and the All Blacks.
  1. Dig the Central Rail Loop tunnel. These guys are professional athletes, they literally train all day. Imagine how much they could do in six hours with some spades and a box of blue Powerade. We could be riding the train to work NEXT YEAR
  2. Come to school and take down Bevan. Bevan thinks he's so tough, but he's in for it now 
  3. Declutter. Imagine how much Adidas shit someone like Kieran Read has, but he always looks like he's got it together. Get him out to the garage with a skip and relax with a beer
  4. Go around to Owen Franks' place. Awkward AF but the right thing to do
  5. Help bridge the urban / rural divide by picking country school kids up in their Falcons and taking then for a hoon around Auckland for the day and buying them a Giapo
  6. Book domestic flights then not turn up so some people get free seats next to them
  7. Bash out this week's premier sporting links n larfs newsletter. Ah har
  8. Wait by the boat ramp and fillet everyone's fish
  9. Facilitate a debate with mayoral candidates in your area that exposes the real issues and helps voters understand how crucial it is to make their voice heard
  10. Sit at the rugby club bar and listen to the old guys' tactical tips for twelve hours
