1924-25 New Zealand rugby union team which toured the United
Kingdom, Ireland, France and Canada. The team was captained by
Cliff Porter, and numbered among its top players George Nepia and
brothers Cyril and Maurice Brownlie. Between September 1924 and
February 1925, the team played 32 games including four test
matches, one each against Ireland, England, Wales, and France. They
won all 32 games, scoring 838 points and only having 116 points
scored against them. Cliff Porter was tour captain, but played only
17 of the 30 games due to injury, including just one test (against
France). During the remaining games, tour vice-captain Jock
