    With NZ winning both the men’s and woman’s 7’s world cups this weekend we now hold the Men’s & Woman’s 15’s & 7’s world cups along with the Junior world cup.

    So I guess that means if Keiran Reid snaps his fingers the Wallabies will disappear... :joy::joy:

    But we also have the blues. They cancel out all those trophies.

    To be fair to the Blues... they only look as bad as they do because they have to play every other NZ team twice...

    They'd probably finish 2nd or even 1st in the aus conference at a pinch, lol.

    Of course NZ are dominating Rugby Union. They're the only country on Earth that still gives half a shit about it.

    This.

    Not taking anything away from how brilliant NZ are, but it’s a gimme for them when the competition is so weak. When South Africa gets their act together (and it’s mainly white South Africa that plays rugby union) they give NZ their only real test, as has been the case over the last two games which were evenly matched. France and England (the only other competitors) have been diabolical for over a decade now.

    The biggest credit that should be given to NZ is how they maintain their high standards and hunger when the competition is pathetic. They celebrate a win over Aus like it’s a huge deal (hasn’t been for about 15 years). They constantly strive to get better despite their opponents being poor, which is not easy.

    Do you actually watch ANY of the All Blacks games? Do you actually watch ANY South Africa games? Do you actually know Anything about Rugby? England "diabolical" for the last decade? won 18 in a row up until last year. Ireland have beaten EVERYONE in the last few years.

    This isn't the first time you have posted about something you clearly have no idea about.

    This is always a little rich coming from league fans.

    Union is part of NZ culture, they are where they should be.

    More respect for All Blacks than VFL, they actually play others.

    They beat RSA, who take it seriously, so good on them.

    Lies. Ireland and Wales have some world class players. Granted Union needs to get rid of its line-out and reduce the numbers on the paddock.

    If RL had had all the social and economic advantages that RU have had, then yes RL would be bigger than RU is now. Is Gridiorn bigger than RU? Yes. So stick that in your pipe...So imagine where RL could be.
