Hard to justify that.
The players were taken out of first half of the Super 14 to prepare for this. 2 SA teams competed in the final. A banner day for SA rugby and not exactly showing NZ rugby in a brilliant state.
Hard to call a team the best in the World when they got knocked out in the Quarters and didnt look like they deserved to win.
Very disappointing as I wanted SA to beat them in the final.
Given recent results, the Argies by way of knockout the best team in the world?
