The All Blacks are such world cup chokers
Its astonishing how the All Blacks mentally crumble where they are challenged at the highest level of rugby. For a team that is consistently at the top of the world rankings between world cups it never fails to amaze me how they just can't handle the pressure of knock out rugby. In last Sunday's final they were missing crucial kicks at goal and had to rely on dodgy refereeing decisions in order to win the Webb Ellis trophy for the second time. If the competition had been held in any other country I very much doubt that many of those decisions would have gone the All Blacks way and that France would have won their first world cup. The favourites tag really doesn't sit well with the New Zealanders..
