The All Blacks are heading for a well earned short break after what was a remarkable season for them.

They suffered just 2 losses all season... retained the Bledisloe Cup and Tri-Nations, completed the Grand Slam in Britain and Ireland.... they won the IRB team award for the year, while Graham Henry was named coach of the year.

The fullback Mils Muliaina says it's great the way the rebuilt team's pulled together after the loss of so many top players following the World Cup.

Muliaina says their first game against the Wallabies was a turning point.
