i think the rugby world cup has become a lot like the football world cup, in that there are about 6 teams (more for football) who could win it at any time, all form outside the world cup, doesn't count, i know that seems strange, but it's it own beast, players react differently under the pressure of world cup games. this is a good thing...
whlist nz is top at the moment unfortunately i think it means nothing.
