The Difference
by Rick Boyd
30 Sep 2001

One of the most interesting things about current rugby is how New Zealanders and Australians evaluate their relative positions after the recent Tri Nations series, and more generally, rugby in the last five years — to choose an arbitrary figure.

The general consensus is fairly consistent in each country but remarkably divided between the two countries.

In New Zealand, the feeling is that the All Blacks have not been performing to standard. In Australia, they feel that the Wallaby team over this period is not only one of the most successful in the world, but arguably the best team in Australian rugby history. A quick look at the results will reveal a picture remarkably at variance with these attitudes. And thereby hangs the tale of The Difference.

In 1997, the All Blacks defeated the Wallabies three times, and the Wallabies never got closer than 12 points to the All Blacks in any test. At the same time, they went 1-1 with South Africa (although the loss was a 61-22 hiding) and with Argentina, and recorded a win and draw against England. Not a great year. By contrast the All Blacks won all their Tri Nations games and were looking pretty damn good, but only to the uninformed. The inconsistent nature of their play worried more experienced observers, but results like these were hard to argue against.

In 1998 the All Blacks lost a core of experienced players and experienced their annus (or anus, take your pick) horribilis, losing all three games to Australia, although two of these were by 5 points or less, and two against South Africa. Australians were understandably on a high even though they lost two games to South Africa, even if one was by one point, and squeaked home by one point against England. New Zealanders, on the other hand were deeply depressed, although the margins were close enough for informed observers to note that the results might not necessarily reflect the play to any great accuracy.

The world cup year, 1999, saw the Wallabies go 1-1 with the All Blacks, both by big scores and both where the losing team lost it rather than the winning team won it. The Wallabies also went 1-1 with the Springboks, with a good win in the first game but losing the second game by 1 point. They got their revenge in the world cup with a close, late win over South Africa and demolished France in the final. In balance, Australia had the world cup and a 2-1 margin over South Africa and could reasonably describe the year as a success despite a drawn series with New Zealand. Conversely, New Zealanders could only view the year as an abject failure particularly given the humiliating surrender to France in the world cup semi-final. But to look at it objectively, the All Blacks won the Tri-Nations, a competition arguably a better indicator of success than the knock-out world cup, and drew a series with the world cup holders.

The year 2000 started well for Australia with two solid wins over South Africa by a good margin. An astonishing opening game against New Zealand saw them haemorrhage three tries in 7 minutes but come back to play the better rugby and lose only to a late and fairly lucky try to big Jonah. The return game was less dramatic in play but not in conclusion, with a penalty kick in injury time retaining the Bledisloe Cup by the narrowest of margins and winning the Tri Nations for the first time into the bargain, and giving Australians plenty to celebrate. The All Blacks played some wildly inconsistent rugby and the general feeling in New Zealand was disappointment yet again, but in reality the All Blacks had again drawn a series with Australia and with such close results that it would be a brave man who would proclaim one side clearly superior to the other.

Stranger results were to follow in 2001, with the Wallabies winning a close series against the British Lions but losing a series against the Springboks with one close loss and one draw. On the credit side of the ledger they beat a woeful New Zealand in the first test but needed a fortunate late try in the return game to win a series against New Zealand for the first time in three years. The All Blacks won both their tests against the Springboks, the second by a good margin, but were their own worst enemies against Australia. As Australia won the Bledisloe Cup and the Tri-Nations they had much to celebrate while for New Zealanders there was only the by-now familiar bitter pill of defeat to swallow. The objective view, however, reveals that all three teams in the Tri Nations remained within a whisker of each other and there is much credibility to the theory that the Australian victory was technical more than actual.

What does the overall picture tell us? The All Blacks are inconsistent but so close to the Wallabies that finding the better side based on play, rather than results, would be a struggle. The Wallabies are more consistent, but the roll of the die has been in their favour at key times when it could just as easily not have been. And the Springboks are therebaouts as well.And here’s The Difference. Why do All Black supporters view this state of affairs as an unimagined horror, while Wallaby supporters celebrate with unbridled glee?

Firstly, there is undoubtedly the shallow end of the pool, where the results are on the scoreboard and the silverware is in the cabinet. Right now this looks better for Australia than New Zealand but it’s not by a lot, seven wins to five.

But for the better informed there is the matter of play, a subjective topic open to much debate. The All Blacks’ play has undoubtedly been less consistent than Australia’s and their error rate undeniably higher, especially this year, but at times they have been more potent in attack and arguably had the better of the forward exchanges, in the balance. No seasoned rugby observer should really be pleased with the standard of play in this year’s Tri Nations, quite apart from its value as a spectacle. New Zealand has been found seriously wanting in some basic areas of play and subject to a range of errors unacceptable in professional athletes. Australia has done little to capitalise on this and have been dragged down to New Zealand’s standard. The Springboks seem simply devoid of any serious attacking options.

And for everyone there is the matter of EXPECTATION. The All Blacks have a culture of winning, a tradition of success built on great teams of the past. The Invincibles early in the century, the great teams of the 60s who just won and won and won. Buck Shelford’s mighty All Blacks of the 80s, fifty games without loss, four years unbeaten. Rugby is New Zealand’s national sport, the yardstick for New Zealand sporting pride. Too many wins are barely enough.

No matter how objective you care to be about the recent results, being on a par with Australia is not seen as success in New Zealand, it is not even seen as a passing grade. Being on a par with Australia is seen as losing and it’s from this perspective that New Zealanders’ reactions must be judged. Australians, on the other hand, were once widely regarded as a rugby joke, burdened by tags such as The Woeful Wallabies and the Awful Aussies. Their rugby history resounds not with titanic battles on the high veldt but humiliating losses to the likes of Tonga or Scotland. Their meteoric rise to genuine rugby superpower status and current keeper of the silverware cannot be dimmed by allegations of lucky wins, close scores and undistinguished play. A win is a win is a win, and any win will do the job as long as it’s an Australian win.

Perhaps some of this relates to the unenviable rise of Australian urban youth culture best reflected in the underarm bowl and the parochial parodies of Roy and HG, where sportsmanship is an optional extra way down the list from winning. But most of it, it may be contended, stems from the lack of tradition in Australian rugby, the lack of expectation to always win, and always win well. The lack of pressure as the national sport to carry the nation’s psyche into battle and return with victory honours — any sort of win is great and a loss, well, it’s only rugby union after all, not anything really important like cricket.

And there’s the bottom line. We’re pretty even in play, the results are slightly Australia’s way. Australians think this makes the Wallabies the best team in history, New Zealanders think it makes the All Blacks bloody pathetic.

Perspective is an amazing thing, isn’t it?

Smith Forces NZRFU Hand
by Paul Waite
23 Sep 2001

In a move which was totally unexpected by the NZRFU, who were in damage control mode last night, Wayne Smith has resigned his job as All Black Coach.

There has been a misguided school of thought, wafting around the country like a bad smell, which held that Smith and Gilbert should be allowed to carry on coaching the All Blacks to the next World Cup due to the absence of any other candidates.

Shit, if we took that braindead stance, then we’d waive General Elections every three years just because the opposition looked a bit pathetic. The truth of the matter is: you can’t tell until you see them in action.

No, the One True Path for the NZRFU was to look at the results of the incumbents as the only yardstick applicable, see that it showed a 55% win ratio against the top teams, and then politely sack the both of them. After that all coaches in the country should have then been invited to apply for the job and the best candidates picked.

Not only would that have sent the message to everyone in rugby that results are what they will be judged on, it would have allowed our other coaches a chance to say how they would tackle the job.

According to an article by Wynne Gray of the NZ Herald yesterday, the review committee appointed by the NZRFU to evaluate the performance of Smith and Gilbert recommended that their jobs be advertised. Apparently the NZRFU “baulked” at this. The question has to be asked why they bothered appointing the panel in the first place then. It’s not as if the people on it were lightweights. With names like John Graham, Sir Brian Lochore, Richie Guy, Andy Dalton and Tane Norton there’s ample reason to take their suggestions very seriously indeed.

Reading between the lines, it would seem that the Lily-Livered Old Farts System would have probably liked to just invite Smith to carry on via a rubber-stamped reappointment, and we’d have been left with a country divided on the decision. How much of this attitude is part and parcel of “professionalism”, and the pressure to appear to have everything under control for the benefit of the big sponsors we wonder?

The upshot of all this palaver was that the NZRFU asked the panel to re-assess Smith a second time. The catch phrase “keep going until you get it right” comes to mind.

All of this nonsense was chopped off at the knees, thank goodness, when Wayne Smith stood up and said that he was resigning. Talk about putting the cat amongst the pigeons. I’ll bet there were a few rugby officials running around the boardroom in little circles flapping their arms up and down wondering which way home was.

Wayne Smith’s mana has risen ten-fold as a result of his decision. I don’t think anyone, least of all us here at Haka, has questioned his passion for the Black Jersey, or his ethics. This decision says it all, and will do the game a lot of good. The NZRFU board also ought to take a hard look at their handling of the affair.

Smith has said he will re-apply for the job along with the other candidates, and stand or fall as the best judged in that arena. Good on him, and good luck to him. If he is awarded the top job again then so be it.

In the meantime, we’d like to see some strong candidates put their hands up and contest the position. Here are a few who might throw their hats into the ring:

  • John Mitchell
  • Gordon Tietjens
  • Wayne Shelford
  • Graham Mourie
  • Graham Henry
  • Laurie Mains
  • Peter Sloane
  • Grant Fox
  • Robbie Deans
  • Frank Oliver
  • John Boe

Obviously a couple of these have other contractual obligations, but who knows – contracts can be re-negotiated.

Haka would love to see the Mitchell/Tietjens combination as we’ve previously said, but obviously that’s a remote possibility. For the main job of All Black Coach we would certainly choose Mitchell, at least. He would then presumably have some say in who his assistant, if any, would be.

Laurie Mains has said recently that he would not consider coaching the All Blacks again. But with more encouragement he might change his mind; he is not too old for the job, and is a better coach now than he was in 1995.

If we had to make a prediction, we would probably go with Smith being re-appointed in the job. Whether he would then be forced to take an assistant of the NZRFU’s choice is unclear. That would be a bad decision since it’s important that the coach chooses someone he’s comfortable working with. We would suggest that the piss-poor development of our forwards over the past two years would ensure that Gilbert is not an option for re-appointment.

In that case, the smart money would probably be on an assistant coach with solid credentials coaching the forwards. That puts Peter Sloane back in the frame, especially since he and Smith worked together very successfully at Canterbury. Mitchell is a distant option in this scenario, since he has indicated that it’s too early for him, and he obviously has his goal set on being All Black Coach, or nothing.

Other options for Smith’s assistant might be Buck Shelford, or Graham Mourie. Of these Shelford probably won’t apply, preferring to coach NPC and maybe moving on to Super 12 in the future. Mourie is a strong prospect, with his deep analytical thinking, however his performance at the Hurricanes hasn’t been outstanding.

Whoever gets the job I hope that the panel of All Black Greats (Brian Lochore et al) who submitted their recommendations to the NZRFU last week have made two important observations which will drive how the new coaches go about their job:

  1. We must pick the best specialist players in their positions.
  2. We must continue to recover our knowledge of the basics of the game, especially in the forwards.

Whatever the end result, at least we have an honest contest and may the best man win.

Some headaches are good to have
by Tracey Nelson
6 Sep 2001

Canterbury have a little problem on their hands at the moment. Actually, it’s probably slightly on the larger side of little, but having said that – it’s a very nice problem to have.

With over half the pack away on All Black duty, and missing their lynch pins of Marshall and Mehrtens from the backline, the Canterbury boys have kept the home fires burning brightly and have sucessfully clocked up maximum points in their three NPC games to date – playing some pretty impressive rugby in doing so.

While the old stalwarts of the team such as Toddy, Greg Feek and Daryl Gibson have helped guide the team along the way, it’s been the young up and comers such as NZ Colts captain Richard McCaw (openside flanker) and past colts Nathan and Aaron Mauger, and Ben Blair that have really been sizzling in the red and black jersey.

Also looking hot to trot has been Scott Robertson, playing at No 8 this season and definitely looking the goods in this position. Combined with Sam Broomhall and McCaw, the Canterbury loose trio really took it Bay of Plenty in last weekend’s Ranfurly Shield defence and were instrumental in the 72-3 drubbing that was handed out to the luckless Bay.

Now with the finish of the Tri-Nations the All Blacks will return from duty to join their provincial sides, and what a headache this is going to be for coach Steve Hansen.

While his front row of Feek, Sexton and Hewitt demolished the BOP front row last week, he will have an All Black hooker and TH prop to add to the mix.

Toddy and league-convert Brad Thorn have done a stirling job winning lineout ball and locking the scrum, but now he has two All Black locks to choose from as well.

Sam Broomhall has been outstanding on the blindside, but Reuben Thorne is now returning to the fold.

And in the backline the youthful pairing of Ben Hurst and Aaron Mauger are going to be competing with the duo of Marshall and Mehrts.

It’s going to be very hard for Hansen to drop his galant provincial troops to the bench or beyond to make way for the returning All Blacks. But certainly, if you’re going to have selection headaches this is the sort of headache you’d want!

NPC Round 4 – Oh the pain!!
by Euan Kilgour
6 Sep 2001

This week I actually felt confident walking in through the gates at Rugby Park. Waikato after a belligerent encounter with 2000 Champs Wellington were finally looking as though they had enough nouse to win the close games and put teams away. Taranaki were coming in on the bottom of the table and after three home games were without a win. Surely Waikato could hold them out.

After a strong first quarter Waikato had been first to score and got in a wonderfully worked try to Scott McLeod. Then another try to Bruce Reihana put Waikato 10 points in the lead, but by this time the cracks were starting to show in Waikato’s tight five, and pressure on them finally lead them to collapse, Taranaki crashing over the line from an attacking lineout. The conversion coupled with a penalty earlier on gave Waikato a slim2 point lead heading into the break.

The second half was all Taranaki who dominated up front and scored two tries to take a 5 point lead. Waikato started to come back, but it was too late, and Taranaki got themselves out of the relegation zone with a 5 point win.

This pretty much sinks Waikato’s chances of a semi berth, as they now must win away again a strong Northland side, and an Auckland side who up until Saturday were looking ominous.

My feeling at the end of the game was one of disgust. Waikato are capable of a much more composed effort than the side that decided it had to play catch up football 10 minutes into the second half. They desperately missed the experience and calming influence of captain Deon Muir, and Rhys Duggans game imploded under the pressure of the captaincy. The backs did well with what ball they got, as Waikato were keeping level with their opponents in loose play. But the 50/50 balls were not going to hand and the last passes were forced, giving Taranaki a surfeit on unforced turnover ball which they calmly converted into territory.

Waikato lack that clinical performance of putting teams away when they’re on top, often going through patches of indifferent form when they should be pressing the foot down on the throat hard. The problem is definitely not in their ability, as Waikato have one of the strongest sides on paper with a ton of skill and potential. No, the answer lies up in that grey matter – they must acquire the mental toughness that Australian teams have.

Kiwi Farce And Aussie Arse
by Rick Boyd
5 Sep 2001

It was all too predictable.

Yet another half-arsed, village idiot display from a tenth rate New Zealand team that brings shame on the once proud name of the All Blacks.

Another ordinary, barely average game from a Wallaby team lauded in Australia as the Greatest Team in History, so low are their expectations.

Another monkey in a referee’s jumper doing his best to completely ruin a game that was already being ruined quite nicely by two pathetically inadequate teams.

Another last-gasp and totally undeservedescape act from an unbelievably lucky Australian team.

Another masturbatory outpouring of Australian boastfulness and self-congratulation.

If there is any balance in the universe, Australia are poised on the verge of a long and dark era of total obscurity to atone for the record-setting tin-arsed jamminess of their continuing Houdini acts of recent years.

This strictly mundane, play-by-numbers collection of plodders, even boosted as they are by Islanders and New Zealanders, do not deserve any footnote in history except for defying the laws of probability, and for being blessed by laughable opposition that obligingly self-destruct to flatter the mediocre Wallabies.

Naturally, over here in Australia they are singing their own praises so loudly any sense of perspective goes right down the drain. Leading the media chorus was Wallaby call-girl Greg Growden, as usual, so infatuated with just how wonderful Australia is that it’s a wonder he could get his hand off it long enough to write his ludicrously fictional articles.

“But yet again the Wallabies knew when they had to produce,” warbled Growders on Sunday, “… they refused to drop their standards.”

It was a common theme from the Aussie hacks. Barely mentioned were the endless string of All Black lost lineouts and unforced errors that were the real cause of the Australian success. All the Aussie cheerleaders invented some magical Australian effort in what was, in reality, a dull and uninspired game that would have seen the Wobblies taken apart like a club social side against a real All Black team.

“…Eales was a prominent force,” gibbered Growden,
“…repeatedly grabbing All Black captain Anton Oliver’s throws.”

Perhaps the fact that Oliver’s throws were going everywhere but where they should have gone might have been a factor. Any moderately competent club side can win parity in lineouts these days, but the All Blacks are so pathetically inadequate they won only seven of 28 lineouts. Australians would love to kid themselves this was due to wonderful Australian play but the vast majority of them were unforced errors, crap play by the All Blacks pure and simple.

Full time clown Peter Fitzsimons confined himself to a saccharine love-letter to John Eales, declaring his undying affection for the retiring Australian captain in no uncertain terms. If I was Eales I’d be keeping my arse to the wall when Fitzsimons was around.

Great Aussie Banana John Connolly, who carries the weight of the argument in Queensland, dribbled on in a similar vein. Eales is a good player, no doubt about it, but they way these halfwits carry on you’d think he was Jesus Christ and Santa Claus rolled into one.

Growden was back in print on Monday with even more vainglorious articles. After gushingly describing how fantastic Australia is in virtually every poisiton, he comes to a sweaty climax with “… when they discuss why Australia stand on a pedestal above New Zealand, a common thread will be the power of leadership. Australia have an abundance of leaders besides the retiring Eales: George Gregan, Matthew Burke, Daniel Herbert, Owen Finegan and Larkham. They all hold up in a crisis.”

God, it must be wonderful being Australian. And yet, with all this magnificence, they needed a lucky late drop goal to stay in the 99 world cup, two lucky last-minute penalties to avoid the wooden spoon in 2000, they were beaten by England, came within a whisker of losing to the Lions, lost a series to the Springboks and relied on a last-minute try to beat a woefully inadequate All Blacks, based on All Black lineout incompetence and refereeing error. Why is all this not adding up for me?

Perhaps because I’m not a loud-mouthed, one-eyed Australian blowhard with the brain of a pea.

Growders froths over Eales’ decision not to take penalty kicks as time ran out. The Australian captain must be a genius! Imagine having the dazzling intellect to work out that at 22-26 down, more than three points were needed to win. Added to which, the restart would have been from half way and the Wallabies were looking anything but penetrative under a blanket All Black defence. With the All Black lineout hardly able to assemble at the right touchline let alone win a lineout, what a master stroke of strategy it required to opt for a lineout close to the goal line.

” And he realised that around him were so many cool, clever heads who would not get dazzled by the moment,” gloried Growden.

Yes, indeed. Just a pity there was not some water around for them to walk on as well.

He rounds off with a quote from Chief Parrot John O’Neill. O’Neill pondered: “You just have to start wondering how many times you can script these things.”

The Australian script is based on unbelievably lucky escape acts? Jeez, are they in trouble.

We won’t even mention the fartings of third-rate hack Spiro Zavos. He’s not even a real Australian and has obviously adopted full-blown Australian conceit only for the thirty pieces of silver.

Meanwhile, New Zealand coach Wayne Smith had the gall to say, “I don’t expect a ticker-tape parade when we get back but I think New Zealanders will recognise the heart and spirit shown by these guys.”

He must be joking. Any professional coach and team who can’t get a reasonable percentage of the simple basics right against ordinary opposition should be held accountable. The lineouts are the obvious area of concern, but add to that the unforced errors, the wrong options, the inability to use an electric outside three, the rushed moves and the tactical naivete, and some severe discipline is needed. Sack Smith, sack Oliver, sack Cribb, sack Randell.

All Blacks my arse. Their current play is a disgrace and heads must roll.

And as for John Eales, good riddance I reckon. I’m sick and tired of his smarmy, goodie-two-shoes Pollyanna act. The Australian captain should be a loud-mouthed prick you can really hate.

Perhaps it might have inspired TTFKATAB (the team formerly known as the All Blacks) to take any one of a string of options to save the game on Saturday night as time ran out.

But they didn’t. They handed option after option to the Wallabies and against all odds, stage-managed a win for the undeserving bombasts in yellow. The All Blacks are crap and have betrayed their fans’ trust.

And I’m very close to being an ex-All Black supporter.

Yes, I know I’m going too easy on them, but I’m a social worker at heart. I just can’t bring myself to say anything REALLY hurtful.

Oliver, Smith, Gilbert Must Go
by Paul Waite
2 Sep 2001

Another season handed to the Australians. Someone has to pay, and it might as well be those responsible.

Back in the Good Old Days, when contracts to play and coach weren’t heard of, it would have been simple. You got a season and a team to play with and if you didn’t get the results, you got the boot. Immediately.

There would have been no “I was proud of the boys” and “I think we can hold our heads high” and “there’s nothing between these teams” bleating from the incumbents at post-loss press conferences, no protracted reviews, no bullshit. The coach would be back looking after his sheep in deepest Whangamata or wherever, and that would be that.

I hope the so-called professional era of New Zealand Rugby can do something professional off the paddock, if not on it.

The game itself was a Black Comedy. Headlining entertainers on the night were the Keystone Cops in the new Zealand lineout. Make no mistake, this shambles was the reason the All Blacks lost the game having managed to make something of it despite the raving lunacy of South African referee Tappe Henning.

The lineout problem itself was a fairly straightforward one. Anton Oliver simply lost the plot early in the first half, and steadily became worse. His throwing was execrable, and meant that any attempts to keep the desperate Australians at bay were certain to founder. The only reason it took so long was that the Best Team In The World were so incompetent. Time and again they bumbled and fumbled on attack, showing a dearth of ideas at odds with their World Champion package label. It took two soft tackles on a dumb rhinoceros charge by Toutai Kefu to break the deadlock.

The other half of this simple equation was the referee. Earlier, in the first half, we were treated to the unusual sight of a player being sin-binned for being punched and not retaliating. Norm Maxwell marched to the touchline looking confused, as were the spectators until the replay screens showed what had happened. Foley had punched Maxwell in the jaw having taken umbrage at having his arm held at a ruck. Maxwell had then been unwise enough to look angry, which of course is usually rewarded with a Red Card. Luckily for him he only got the Yellow. The end result of this utter nonsense was ten points to Australia; three for the original penalty, and then a converted try due to the All Blacks only having 14 men on the park. Tappe Henning 10 – All Blacks 0.

Good one ref.

I could also mention the blatant knock on the Australians made at the lineout which led to their winning try, which Henning’s incompetence missed, but that would be sour grapes, so I won’t talk about it for that very reason. Besides, he missed an equally blatant forward pass in the All Blacks second try.

The All Blacks have been in the doldrums now, playing rubbish rugby, for four long seasons. It all started in 1998, and has continued unabated since that time. Every season there are some changes, and the team looks to have “potential” but the performances are largely poor in the key tests, with the odd surprise (eg. the Springboks last week).

Once again it is time to make changes to the coaching staff, and the All Black captaincy.

Smith must go due to his patent ineptitude with selections, as demonstrated in the ealier part of the season. Valuable time has been wasted, and he still has a blind spot regarding openside flanker berth. Enough is enough. Gilbert’s handling of the forwards is also short of the mark, with the lineout a very basic blemish which has not been improved in two seasons of trying. The pair have had two years, have won nothing, and have not done enough with the team to warrant any further work. We’ve seen enough. It’s time for new blood at the top, with plenty of time to build for the 2003 World Cup.

Anton Oliver is no All Blacks skipper. His leadership on the field in Sydney was all “from the front” but had little substance in terms of talking to the team. The re-surfacing of his technical deficiencies in throwing the ball in to the lineout also mean that his position as All Black No.2 has to be in doubt. This is a basic requirement, and he failed in that. Mark Hammet stands ready as a replacement.

The loss in Sydney is easy to dismiss or explain. Smith and Co. will be at pains to sell the idea that we actually did quite well, and nearly got there. They will tell us there isn’t much difference between the teams, and that it’s just a case of working to handle the pressures etc.

This is nonsense. The team played badly, and suffered humiliation in a basic phase of the game – the lineout. It lost because of this technical deficiency which the coaches have had two years to rectify.

If the NZRFU and the public look at this honestly, and take the steps required, then we can go forward. If the same nonsense is perpetuated, then we can look forward to more of the same next year and the year after that.

Is that what we want?

Think on it, but don’t think too long.
