Yea but i reckon n.z took the foot off the gas for a bit when they established a significant lead before the second half. As soon as their clutch players decided to play at their best, we got demolished. Its also a mental game imo, we are mentally just scared whenever we go up against nz. due to the amount of losses we have suffered against them since 1996. In saying that, our current crop of players in the youth development league seem to have a lot of potential. Lets see how to they go in the next wc.
