I would agree it certainly wasn't a vintage side the 2012 game possibly was against better opposition (and we lost to SA and Aus in Autumn) but its hard to tell in that rugby cycle we played them once in 1 point game it still felt they had the wood over us. I think Olyy's reasonning to showing it to a kid is sound. I grew up with the orc's its far better to be watching sides with players you know.Heresy probably, but in the 19 semi vs NZ we were very very good from the Haka formation onwards but that really wasn’t a vintage NZ team. While still an excellent performance, with hindsight it doesn’t feel quite like the era defining win it did at the time. I think we celebrated more beating the aura more than anything else. Maybe we’ve had unrealistic expectations ever since.
Also my uncle got to go to the 2012 game and he can't be forgiven for being that damn lucky
Minor point: Even if you don;t like basketball (and I don't) watch 'The Last Dance' its fantastic.
