what, no love for the all blacks?
The New Zealand All Blacks are the greatest rugby team in the world, always have been and possibly always will be but in all honesty Rugby is not a truly international game.
are really the only sports that count on a genuine international stage and what Campbell did today is way better than anything the All Blacks have done, including the 1987 World Cup.
1963 was the last time a New Zealander won a golf major. We've never won a tennis grand slam event and our soccer team is as good at soccer as the USA is at rugby
For a small country (population 4 million) we have had an incredible amount of success at the Olympics but nothing since 1976 to compare with this.
A great day, MC you are the man
