Tana was a great captain for you Kiwis! This is actually a huge loss. I know the press credited the first two test wins over the lions to Dan Carter but he is the man who broke them early. Just ask a certain Mr. O'Driscoll.
Sadly for NZ this is another case of them peaking between world cup years. All the better for my Springboks!

They have dissapointed as World Cup chokers in the past, however they seem to have built better depth in the squad now so the peak is more likely to last. Not much leadership depth though with only one obvious captain option now.
Quoting Brendan03 (Reply 4): Maybe he did it because he couldn't handle losing to the aussies again?
It's been a little while I doubt he can remember it!! The way the Wallabies are playing at the moment I would imagine he has more cause to fear the Toowoomba Boys High 2nd XV!!
