    We have actually played Romania plenty of times, infact they toured here in 75, but the game in 1981 is the only one that we gave test match status to.

    Most games the All Blacks played were not test matches as we didnt consider the opposition good enough.This changed in 87 with the advent of the World Cup

    With the revelation that Scotland are going to play their second stringers in the game against us, i cant see us not getting at least 70 points in every game. I dont think it would be outragoues for us to crack a 100 in every game either

    The only reason we got to the final in 95 was cos he called in two of the greatest rugby names. Meads was the Manager and Lochore was the campaign manager.

    Were they on a reunion tour or summat? Live from the Westpac Stadium, the new smash hit boy band.... All those years ago (15 to be exact) they were taking the field in rugby union, but now, for YOU (and Jamee's mum), they take to the stage....

    What a load of bollocks. The ABs got to the final in 1995 because of the style of rugby they were playing, and because of selections like Josh Kronfeld and Andrew Mehrtens and, of course, Jonah Lomu.

    Of course, the coach and players would have nothing to do with it I doubt these 2 guys you mentioned did much more than give the odd motivational speech about the "pride of the jersey", etc and perhaps count the bags as they came off the bus

    And, in Meads' case, complain about how much "bloody pasta" they're eating.

    Haha, worst post. I take it you don't actually remember much about the 1995 World Cup? To complete ignore the fact that we had Kronfield, Lomu and Merhtens all playing very, very good football is a large oversight on your behalf.

    I don't remember much of the final, because we had been at a party (must have been a blue moon that night, because I got lucky), and we went back to my friend's place to watch the final. Unfortunately the reception was so terrible we could barely make the ball out in amongst the fuzzy static, so it was a guess whether the drop kicks had gone through the posts. I've never watched that game again.

    Mum and Dad slept through their alarm so didn't watch it and have never sought out a replay.
