What a game abs 23 oz 22, great defence and great attack. Congrats abs showed a lot of heart to come back. Tri nations clean sweep first in history. Look out NH here comes the abs :D

"Sadly though only 15 players will fit on the field at one time"

Unless you're England. In which case you can probably manage 16 from time to time. You might even pull strings at the IRB to get the referee who tries to prevent it fired.

ha ha ha B. Pack your small man/small conutry syndrome away mate - makes you sound pathetic and tiresome.

we've heard it all before - The AB's are the best ever etc etc, yet to an outsider looking in they would look at the WC stats and conclude that the AB's are an abject failure. No mental fortitude you see. Can't handle any pressure. Flat track bullies.
It's easy to see why - Rugby is the only thing NZ has a remote chance of doing well at and thats all they focus on all year, every year. It must really get up your nose that countries like Aust, Sth Africa, England and France consistently perform better than NZ at the pinnacle of a sport that is a religion in NZ yet only the 3rd or 4th ranked sport in the above mentioned countries. By all means, proclaim yourself the best, just have the balls to back it up - something which NZ rugby seriously lacks, if they ever possessed at all.<laugh>

need any more sour grapes to suck on?? I hear they go well with some possum.

Wow! Anyone would think that itīs the Aussie posters on here with the arrogance problem.

Stop frothing at the mouth and clam down mate. Still a year out. Be happy with the improvement in your team and letīs not take away from the great spirit shown by the ABs to come back and win.

All this talk of the World Cup still one year out is just glossing over what happened last weekend.

Just as NZīs fortunes turned round from last year, so too can it happen to say SA.

If you think Kiwis are obsessed with the World Cup, you seem to bring it up an awful lot. Anyone, would think you were talking about the rugby league World Cup. Unionīs not the only sport where the favourites sometimes donīt make it.

Sorry...When does this happen? I must've popped out for 115 years and missed it, maybe.

mightydeceaser, please get off the soap box the anti-new Zealand rhetoric is wearing thin......a disgruntled Aussie perhaps???? Yes, the referee doesn't always get it right, nz has been been on the receiving end of some extremely poor and dubious decisions it doesn't mean we throw all of the toys out of the preverbal pram. Australia played good rugby for 65 mins and the rest is history, you can never say the games lost until the final whistle. I see this as a test of the abs character and resilience as very promising and positive but anything can happen as history has previously proved.

mightydeceaser- Have read your most recent post demonstrating your ignorance of New Zealand's past and current sporting prowess is appalling. "Ignorance must be bliss"
I certainly know which team will have the home support and has the track record that all other competitors dream for!

the best teams will always be critisized by their opponents and followers...a mark of respect or a mark of fear..keep it up people the more you say against the AB's.. the better it sounds...
