    I have to rate 07 as worse than 99 based on the fact that in 99 the All Blacks just ran into a team that played like they were on roids in the 2nd half. They just had too much pace. Im quite happy to credit the French that day. It was like Nantes 86 but worse.lol

    All of them are pretty bad,its like reliving going to the dentist.

    Hold on a minute, it's not that bad!

    Well that is a tad hyperbolic to be fair,and its easier to accept as you age. I put the last semi exit down to the ferocious Poms and how well they played. Theres been instances of AB teams exiting down to how badly they played but this recent one,im more accepting.

    Newbies, huh?
    You got to lurk for a couple of years, before ever posting. Learn the in-jokes and context. Just common sense.
    Edit... I used the term “fluffybunnies” in a chat off-Fern last week. Confusion ensued.

    Just gotta keep your head down, watch listen and learn who runs the asylum



  • 07 for me - only QF exit, poor refereeing, just painful.

    91 wasn't unexpected after barely retaining the Bledisloe Cup.

    95 didn't expect anything after we lost a home series to France in 94.

    99 was poor, we had that in hand and then collapsed, so that's second worse for me.

    03 was just unlucky with the wizard Mortlock.

    07 F...

    19 got outclassed so that's probably 3rd worse.

  • I think 07 hurts the most because there were so many factors. That is the game which has the most "if only's". We were the best team going into that tournament and the semis and finals were both shit. I think 2003 and 1991 both hurt the least (although I am too young to remember 91. Even if we won those games, we probably would have lost in the finals to better teams. In 1995 we have the best excuse, so that one doesn't hurt as much either.



  • If not for the repeat cup wins of 11 and 15, 2019 could rank much higher. We beat the Boks with stout defence and enough lethal attack in the pool game. We destroyed Ireland in the QF by attacking the heart of their perceived strengths, leaving them with no chance. We abandon the QF game plan and play Globetrotters rugby against England, get knocked down, fail to make any adjustments on field or in the sheds at half time, and suffer an embarrassing loss.



  • Yeah went for 2007 but I was actually having a great night that night - I remember 99 as I was living in the capital and the next day it was an absolute ghost town and grim. 2003 I was in Sydney and headed out afterwards for a massively chaotic night, but the sorrows were largely drowned. 95 I was just finishing up college and it was more shock than disappointment.



  • I was 12 and had finished playing my first year of rugby in 2007. So I had to pick it. I've heard stories about the others though, particularly 95 and 99. I remember watching the AB's lose and the camera zooming in on DC's face. 12 year old me was fucked off for a whole coupley hours before I realised that I was 12 and that playing PlayStation was more important anyway. Looking back I know it was shit as the squad was insane and it felt like there was a bunch of fuckery that was out to get us.

    Well we all know @canefan is no more and it's just @Snowy wearing a skin suit.



  • @canefan this



  • 2007 - such a magnificent squad, absolutely dominating the French and a refereeing performance so diabolical that an investigation should've been held into match fixing.

    1999 - match in control and then a massive choke.
