Whether we strictly *need* to mix it up or not I for one hope we do. Though I expect it will come naturally bit by bit.Yeah, It has become a little bit one dimensional. Mix it up a bit. Remember how you were at the start of rassie’s reign? You beat england in a series at home with attacking rugby, and despite atrocious defence at the time, and coming off a few years off very poor rugby by springboks standards.
now, on who was the best between 1921 and 1976, well I think you can discount all of the games in South Africa, since the all blacks had to be all white for those matches. So, that would mean the all blacks had a slight winning record against the boks during that time, I believe. perhaps we just wipe the whole period of history from our memories. Certainly I’m not proud that we played the springboks at all during those times.
On the last paragraph, well I am sorry you feel that way. History is what it is all one can do is learn from it. I'm not even going to start arguing dates and nuances. Lets leave it as that. New Zealanders will say they were the top dog and South Africans will claim dominance up till the isolation years.
