What an outstanding tournament! The ABs are world rugby champions again and all is good in NZ. The sun is rising each day to smiles across the nation and we all feel like the natural order will thankfully continue. I have loved watching the journey of the team that began after the 2007 RWC Quarterfinal loss to France in Cardiff. There has been a quiet transformation from then until now and winning in 2015 compared to 2011 is even sweeter again. I reflected on this while hearing Steve Hansen’s comments at the after-final press conference - “we are just ordinary people who can play rugby reasonably well” in his normal kiwi understated way!
