If New Zealand loses this Rugby World Cup, there'll be referees to blame and the world won't let us forget it, but Kiwis should move on and remember the wins.

The All Blacks came back from a 2007 quarter-final loss to bring home the cup from consecutive tournaments in 2011 and 2015. The first and only team to do so.

The team holds the record for the most consecutive test match wins for a tier-one ranked nation.


But if what's considered unthinkable by many were to happen, the team would just be a disappointment to many people.
