The All Blacks' last gasp victory over Ireland gave the team the first perfect test season in the professional era - 14-0.

The perfect record begs the question: is this the best All Blacks team ever?

Marc Hinton reminds us that there have been some mighty New Zealand teams over the years. Brian Lochore's side won every test they played for four years between 1966-69, the 1987 World Cup-winning All Blacks went on a tremendous run on the back of their victory in the inaugural global tournament, and John Hart's men of 1996-97 lost just one test in that span, and in the process became the first New Zealand side to win a series in South Africa.

So does the perfect season make a perfect team? Or has there been a better team with a not-so-flawless record?
