View Full Version : Why is it that winning the World Cup is so fucking difficult for NZ rugby as a whole?

He'd probably just post the Tri-Nations league table.

Nation pld pts
New Zealand 5 23
Australia 3 4
South Africa 4 1

Wow.

That's ok, they can win all the Tri Nations trophies they want. We both know they burn to win the World Cup though, especially as we (I think England have won it twice as well?) have won one more than them. :smoke:

There have only been 6, they won once, we won once, you and SA won twice each. They'll win at home next year. I bet you a pint.

Oh, SA then. I knew someone else had won it twice. :cute:

Another pint, huh? Alright, I'll take that bet so you can owe me two! The added pressure of playing at home will be their undoing! :beer:

Yes, but everyone else looks shit at the moment. I know it's a year to go but still. :beer:

Yeah, but all it will take is one team lifting for one match. Like France beating them in France (was that 2007?) then going on to totally suck against us in the final. They'll choke, you watch! :beer:

That match was in Cardiff, I was there. Best atmosphere of any sporting event I've been to.

(but the world cup was in France)

I watched the England Australia game in the pub with MOBIUS beforehand, was fantastic hearing all the kiwi fans cheer England when that result was read out in the Millennium Stadium, not often England get a cheer there. ;)

You last got to the final in 2003 but someone beat you... hmm. Who was that...

Own fucking goal! :bash:

Johnny Wilkinson from memory. Heaven knows the rest of the team didn't do much.

Back!
