Are you one of the All Blacks' biggest supporters, have stars in your eyes and are up for a challenge? Think you’ve got what it takes to help kick-off a new fan movement in support of New Zealand’s favourite team? If so, Telecom and Scott on Tour need your help.

The All Blacks are one of the most beloved sports teams in the world and have a huge fan base, but they don’t have a place where fans can get together and express their support.

With help from Telecom, decathlete and devoted All Blacks follower Scott McLaren, is looking to kick start a fan generated movement. Scott, also known as Scott on Tour, needs to recruit the Starting Line Up – a leadership group of fans from around New Zealand who will help get the idea off the ground in time for the upcoming All Blacks test season.

Scott developed a loyal Facebook following of more than 6,000 Kiwis when Telecom sent him to follow the All Blacks on their Northern Tour to Europe last year, reporting back via

“I had some awesome behind-the-scenes moments with the All Blacks on tour which I was able to share with everyone back home, and throughout my journey everyone asked, ‘how do I get your job?’

“Now is your chance - we’re looking for six extraordinary All Blacks fans who will help us take All Blacks support to another level, and we’ll take them on the road for this year’s six home test matches.”

Anyone who thinks they’ve got what it takes should simply make a video selling themselves, and their love for the All Blacks and send it to us. Go to for information including the job description.

Twelve finalists will be chosen to attend an audition where they will have one last chance to impress the judging panel - which includes three current All Blacks – on May 26. The panel will set the finalists challenges to complete before announcing who the Starting Line Up will be.
