RE: One for the kiwi's!

i blog on english, aussie, irish, saffa and of course my main stoimping grounds on the kiwi forums, and one thing i always find very common from every rugby nation is that when a NZer says something positive about their team, they alway say the same ol yarn, "oh look, herers someone who knows his rugby" LMAO.
heard a mirror image comment of urs on planetrugby .com forums after the 2nd All Black irish test about justin marshall.
nothing wrong with it, but its easy to cater the ego when dealing in a world of what ifs? o_O
the fact is, ive said a number of time right here that the All Blacks were lucky, cos on stats alone the Boks outplayed the Boks, but u seem to think that almost winning is the same as winning and i gurantee if the Boks mindset is anywhere near ur level, theyre gonna get creamed by the All Blacks.
despite the Boks having played more stronger and better for larger parts of the game, the pure fact of the matter is they still lost, that is the simple fact of dunedin test.
all this talk about missed kicks and good and valid and all, but i very rarely read comments about the missed tries that ABs bungled from poor execution.
what im wondering is this, if the Boks cant beat the All Blacks when they play better then them, whats going to happen if the All Blacks gain parity or even play better??? given that not only did the All Blacks win in dunedin, but they denied the Boks any points at all, making their dunedin test labour fruitless.
i personally wouldnt be surprised as to who will win this weekend, theres no All Black challenge greater then the Boks at home, but theres a reason why the All Blacks are the RWC, IRC, freedom plate and have monopolised the IRB No1 ranking for over 80% of the time, because they are a world class team everywhere they play.
now with carter back running the show and aaron smith back starting in the team, im personally very confident about this saturday, even with rolliand calling the shots, but hey each to their own and we can only wait and see comes out on top, my All Blacks who have a 100% winning record in 2012, or ur Boks who have a 50% winning record, :P
