I am happy but I wouldn't get too carried away. We looked good against England in 99 pool play too which was a much hyped pool game from memory.
Rieko's problem is Bridge's game seems far better suited to today's test rugby. Perhaps that's an indictment on today's test rugby (seriously how many box kicks have their been already) but Bridge is superior in the air, Bridge has superior workrate, he's as good of a link player, and Bridge actually has a kicking game. Rieko is a better ball runner (when in form) but up against Boks/Ireland etc Bridge's skillset seems far more useful. For all Rieko's early career greatness - he's got the exact same game he had 2 years ago (plus his form on that is way down). He hasn't developed his game at all - why hasn't he been working on a kicking game?
