    Indeed. We thankfully got over the 100% loss record to Namibia in 2003 :o

    Not a win, though :) I'm hoping they never do beat the All Blacks as I'm a kiwi living here, and well......

    Robbed? More like slipped a rohypnol and taken feckin' advantage of in a most ungentlemanly way....sigh


  • Registered Users Posts: 17,960 RuggieBear

    Surprised it hasn't been brought up!!!

    Munster are the only Irish side to ever beat the All Blacks. It's very frustrating as an Irish fan to watch our games against the All Blacks because countless times we've been so near, yet so far!

    More often than not its due to crappy call by the ref.... would i be the only one thinking that the refs are afraid to penalise the AB's in case they might actually lose???? happened the last test game against ireland... and cost Munster their outing

    no i dont think the ref can be blamed for us losing to the abs in my rugby life time, thats the last 15 years.
    it used to be we werent fit enough and'd lose it in the last 15/20 mins.
    as jackass has said we've been close but no cigar yet.
    i always feel though that our first win will actually come over there on an end of season tour.


  • Registered Users Posts: 20,361 ✭✭✭✭ Podge_irl


    We've been very close on a number of occasions in the last few years (ironically more so in NZ) but I never thought we were the better team. We simply have a number of weaknesses that NZ are all too good at exploiting (the backrow did an amazing job of protecting O'Gara in the two summer tests in 06 for example, but it just took one break through him and there was a try). I'm fairly sure we'll beat them eventually, but most of the results have given a good indication of where we are as a team - very good but by no means the best.

    Very true BUT the main question is can you do it again? Can you keep it up or will you continue to flopped

    Is only a matter of time.. we should have beaten them on a few occasions before.. but they are let away with way too much which is the downfall of alot of team that play them

    No, they're not. Can hardly expect the refs to swing it your way to beat them. The boks beat NZ in their own backyard - bad ref and all.

    I can;t predict what they won't be. 1,2,3,4,5,6. Bonus won't be 7

    I never said swing it our way... i said stop letting them away with stuff other teams wouldnt.. McCaw spends most of his time off side in rucks and the number of times the runners are in front of the kicker as he kicks the ball.. plus you add in dodgey tackles see All blacks v ireland and munster for perfect examples you begin to see what im getting at

    This thread will be locked very soon so I have to get in quickly to say that McCaw's cheating was highlighted a bloody decade ago.

    Still got away with it until the day he retired. What a legend.

    Aside from the pointless thread, McCaw is the greatest forward I've seen.

    He is also living proof that profile and ability will impact on the officials to the extent that they will second guess themselves whereby they will actually overlook genuine infringements as they know a player is so good, they'll doubt what they saw.

    Here's one of my favourites. McCaw is the lad on his knees with his back to us. From this position, he went and put hands on the ball, turning this over, I recall.
