Oh Come on, What world are you living in? Australia and New Zealand are among the worst offenders. And its not just rugby either. Not too famililar with the US team, but You can be sure they arent all born and bred yanks either....

maninjapan79,

been thrashed by southern hemisphere teams recently have you? or perhaps you live in a country where people from the 3rd world are not welcome. Sure, NZ and Aus have a few talented Islanders on their teams but they are the product of domestic rugby, not Island rugby. By your account Island rugby should conquer all. That is far and beyond their means. Obviously playing Rugby in NZ and Aus has enhanced the skills of an Islander just as it has the players who are natural citizens. This slur is just more propaganda by a hater of the powerful southern unions where rugby is played and developed at a superior level.

It's been long time since Japan beat US rugby. Japan is the strongest only in Asia, not in the world. but thier coach, John Kirwan who is from New Zealand, improve Japanese national team, I believe.

Probably, virtually no one in America knows about it either.
