Auckland RFC didnt lose a single game in 5 years prior to Super Rugby. Super Rugby was created by NZ (probably a Cantab RFC) with Dwyer. Conspiracy to bring down the Auckland RFC legacy !


Same thing with Liverpool Football Club ! If you were born in the 50s-70s you are more likely to be a Liverpool supporter (of course people liked other teams), but they were so dominant before the EPL it seemed truely unfair.


But once again LFC is leading the EPL and will return to its elite empire.

I support the mighty reds. Inherited it from my dad and am in the process of passing it on to my kids.

I've always thought of them more like Wellington rughby, tbh. Perform great against the big teams but pants against the rubbish ones.

Oh in the day, they were the St George Dragons of Fussball or the Auckland Blues prior to Super Rugby of Football.


I watched them win win win like Man U have now in Pro footy. Of course they earnt money, but now players are paid zillions and a lot more foreign players in the EPL than before. Perhaps thats why English soccer has not performed on the world stage since about that time it started to go pro (ie The Hand of Goodness 86 World Cup match)

What was the blonde spanish player (brain fog) we had in about 2010, and we did exactly that.


Not I think this team is a different mentality. Win or Draw never lose.

fernando torres?


the team has a different mentality and a better coach but they will still choke, its just who they are. and i see their seasons more as win big, win big, win big, lose unexpectedly to a rubbish team, draw. draw, win big, and that will keep them off the top.

yes yes Torres I had a brain fart moment yesterday. i expected so much from him, and he started ok but failed to deliver really.


What im seeing is a fail in the forwards. We have a solid defense and midfield but our striking is like the Warriors league, 10 tries per game dropped before the try line!
