There was a 10 year period where the Highlanders did not make a semi final in super rugby, and it was a hard watch.
A couple of years with Glen Moore as a coach were particularly hard as a supporter. A coach who incidentally is now involved as an assistant coach at the blues
Sure, but the Blues haven't made the top 8 in how many years?
I can't say I followed the Highlanders except for maybe the past 5 years, but the Chiefs were generally underperforming then too right? NZ Dominance in SR is a relatively recent thing.
