These images show the lengths to which New Zealand fans went to show their support for the All Blacks during the 2011 Rugby World Cup. Some painted their faces black and white, while others wore clothes in appropriate colours or planted banners in their paddocks. One Christchurch person recorded the scores of All Black games on their suburban fence, and in Hastings Father Christmas received an All Black uniform.
