The All Black revolution has reached the point that a leading English rugby writer and former test player wants them to win the next World Cup.

Stuart Barnes, writing in The Times, said New Zealand was turning the game upside down in a brilliant way.

"More than a hundred years of test match rugby ideology is coming to an end. As far as the All Blacks are concerned anyway," Barnes wrote, after the All Blacks 46 - 24 win over Argentina in Nelson.

"Seventy points, nine tries and defence was barely criticised. This is rugby's positive revolution. Attack is king. Fear, so long the driving force of the sport, has been replaced.


"All those 'defence win titles' scrawls written on changing-room walls are going to become little more than dated graffiti against New Zealand. The mindset has been altered.

"There are, of course, many ways to play the game but New Zealand's record suggests that constant speed against the clout of those who cherish collision is the ideal for the modern game.

"The 2015 All Blacks were far and away the best team in that competition but this side are changing the rules. They are ripping them up. It looks like anarchy."

Barnes has always been a worldly rugby critic and appears to believes a third consecutive All Blacks World Cup victory is vital, to take the game ahead in the best direction.

Barnes wrote: "Watching the All Blacks and Argentina followed by the 'so what' of Australia against South Africa an hour later makes me hope that New Zealand seal their extraordinary era of domination with an exclamation mark in Yokohama."
