As a Kiwi its my duty to offer an apology to all my friends from England, South Africa and Australia for the solid beating you will receive at the World Cup which starts in a few days in Auckland. Let me extend the same apology to friends from Scotland, Ireland, WALES, France, Canada and the USA. I just want you all to know that we New Zealanders really do love you all and if you do lose, and you will, then please return to your home country with the pride that your rugby team had their arses whipped by the best team in the world!
A little quote from Wikipedia for you to meditate on:
The All Blacks have held the top ranking in the world for longer than all other countries combined and in over 100 years only five of the top twenty ranked test rugby nations have ever beaten New Zealand.
TIP: If you want to tune into the World Cup and hear the backstory and the background and the BACKSTABBING behind the games then I recommend my old friend Murray Deaker who blogs and spurts inflammatories and emotional outbursts at Deaker on Sport, once he gets back on his game.
