Boks: WCup, Rugby Championship

Scotland: Calcutta cup (v England), 5 nations (forever holders since 1999), Hopetoun cup (v Oz)
England: Cooke cup (v Oz)

Ireland/ France/ Argie/ Oz/ Italy... Tumbleweed



SA also hold the Raeburn Shield - This title is played for each time the current holder plays someone. For example if SA next play Oz and Oz win that game, the title passes to Oz who would in turn put it up against whoever they play next.

None of the rugby world countries take all three as seriously as England do anyway.  South Africa and Oz do with two and are average at football, the rest either don’t play cricket or Footballet enough to be contenders.

thanks for needlessly repeating this ... Erm

Where have I repeated this before? Never, so get off my posts.

Yes that’s how most of those work. The Bledisloe is often over three tests though.
Sorry, just read it again so rather than remove will correct...if that’s the case then yes as bluestone says that’s a really good way of doing it.

We have the Ranfurly shield at national level which at one point was our main, and only trophy played for nationally.

There were some iconic matches in the 60s to 80s, when unbelievably Auckland defended it 63 times straight from 85-93, one record that will never be broken. 10 or 15 is considered a decent run. Other comps that involve sides more across the board have risen above its importance but it’s still there.

But internationally it would be an idea to have a higher profile instance of the same. The issues with it are that it’s possibly difficult to promote long term as it ‘could be anywhere’.

But it could ‘spike’ last minute sales if it were sold in a way that winning it carried weight, an AI match for example if played for a highly sought after trophy could add flavour to what is otherwise a series of one offs that don’t have anything on them other than bragging rights and rankings. Dollar matches.

btw...How come we didnt have this one then? We last beat SA? Does it not count certain matches?

Unless it went from SA, to us, without knowing that, to England then back to SA? Very Happy

You do. It's called the James Bevan Trophy. Since 2011 I think?

It's like a Lineal champion. I love the idea

It went from japan to SA. Japan "won" it from Ireland (WC game), Ireland won it from Wales in the Pre-WC warm up. Wales won it from England pre-WC, who won it from Wales the week before.

Scotland: Calcutta cup (v England), 5 nations (forever holders since 1999), Hopetoun cup (v Oz)
England: Cooke cup (v Oz)

Ireland/ France/ Argie/ Oz/ Italy... Tumbleweed



SA also hold the Raeburn Shield - This title is played for each time the current holder plays someone. For example if SA next play Oz and Oz win that game, the title passes to Oz who would in turn put it up against whoever they play next.

i love the idea of the Raeburn shield. I wish it would be officially recognized

btw...How come we didnt have this one then? We last beat SA? Does it not count certain matches?

Unless it went from SA, to us, without knowing that, to England then back to SA?  Very Happy


So Ireland went into the WC as holders, after taking it off Wales during the warm up game. Japan then beat Ireland in the WC pool stage to take the trophy. SA then beat Japan in the quarter final so took it. They have not been beaten since! You can track it all here https://www.raeburnshield.com/previousholders

Who had held it since...beating SA in 2018? Who'd beaten NZ in the summer, who had held it...for a while?

Did the Lions ever hold it in 2017? Presumably not as they won and then drew the final 2 games - but that doesn't seem out of the realm of possibility come 2021.

Edit: Just seen the longlist, Wales didn't hold it for too long in the winning streak then.

Have to ask then - why did the Lions not claim it in the Summer of 2017? NZ held it from 2016 to Oct 2017? Yet the beat, lost, and then drew v the Lions in the middle of that...

I think there's been a mistake. It's not SA with the Shield, it's the Lions...no!?

Also, also...mental to see that Wales held it in 2007 then lost it...in May 2007!? I had to check as I thought it was too early for a warm up game.

Completely forgot (but remembered) Wales toured Australia in 2007. That's crazy. Months before the Rugby World Cup. Not long before the warm up games, either. They actually played well on tour as well, completely bottled a win at the death in one game.

If you need any better indication of how the game changed in the years between 2007-2010/11, it's the fact Wales went on a blydi summer tour to Australia - a team they'd play in their group - before a RWC...

Also, final point on Wales - we've lost the shield in some real stinkers over the years. Talk about boom and bust. Samoa in 1999, Japan in 2013...

I wouldn't have thought the Lions would be eligible for it since they only play every four years.

Maybe. But it would put some added jeopardy on that 3rd test if the shield did become a thing and, say, the tour was already wrapped up 2-0 by either team.

Though it's hardly a perfect barometer, what the shield does show is NZ's utter dominance this decade. They held it basically one year on, one year off, then on the first opportunity to reclaim it, won it back, and the cycle of holding it for another 12 months continued.

But that ended with the Lions tour - even if you don't award them the shield.

They haven't held the shield since during/just after failing to win the Lions tour. And ofc their results have stuttered since as well.

I really do think Gatland doesn't get nearly enough praise for pulling that off, nor was it looked at (by enough people...but not me...) as a barometer for where NZ were as a country, as a team, as a system etc. They really ought to have wrapped that tour up 3-0 if the 2011-2015 team had played it. Forget when SOB said, that's the kind of hubris that misunderstands what it takes to win the important games when it really counts - the kind of hubris that doesn't see a 20 point defeat coming in a RWC. Not saying either England or Ireland were guilty of that this year, but they have been in the past, and there were obvious echoes of the same again - too many assumptions. That Lions tour was probably Gatland's greatest achievement. No way should they have been competitive in those tests.

You can't include a side that only plays every 4 years and also only ever plays 3 other sides.

One thing with Wales is that once they "win" the Raeburn Shield, they aren't very good at keeping it.

That Lions tour was probably Gatland's greatest achievement. No way should they have been competitive in those tests.

Gats had the selection from four countries, two have since became number one ranked, the other, and much stronger side, went to two, and was favourite when the World Cup final rolled up. All three were considered possible World Cup ranked. All three went on ten plus winning runs since 2016. Two won series in Oz.

NZ shed several of some of its greatest players after 2015 and still hadn’t fully replaced players when the Lions rolled up.

Gats should have won that series easily, with the best of three serious contenders for the top spot. Instead they got done in the first, which after the fact had Warburton in tears, all but returning home after the first due to the pressure of expectation. Then they somehow managed to draw the series off the back of sixty minutes of a key carded player.

And you think Gats should have been given more credit? For drawing with that level of selection available?

Amazing, what else do you need to win here?

Can’t wait till Wales tours next year. Following the World Cup NZ usually let the next sides know they haven’t lost it, so Scotland and Wales (two)one with a poor coach, the other with a new coach.

Mind you, we’ll have a new coach as well, but I’m guessing by then there will be a lot of new energy across the board.

England aren't 'much stronger' than Wales and Ireland. Only in the minds of 'we judge teams by how they play against NZ'.

That stupid mindset cost Hansen his legacy. He thought Ireland were the strongest team. Got it wrong. So did you. Suppose you can throw a "we" over that one, if it's any consolation...

England are MUCH stronger. Always have been. We never thought Ireland were stronger. There were three in this from the start, and thats how they finished. Not everyones order but top three nonetheless. The rest were distant efforts.

Ireland were average at best in the 6N, terrible in the warmups and worse again in the Tournament proper. Once again they cracked on the big occasion.

Once again Miaow strikes out with his analysis. Once again Ireland exited quarters, once again Wales exited semis.

And you think hansen got it wrong. Eddie puts him to shame. He spent two years focussing on 'the wrong side' ha ha. Hansen didnt focus on anyone. THAT was his downfall. But how would you ever know that?

Anyway, bring your little team down n next year, and good luck. thumbsup

Heres the current state of Wales in NZ:

Played 10, lost 10
Points for 95, against 405 at 40-10
9 tries to 56 at 1:6

Last effort, 46-6, 6 tries to none in 2016.

Enjoy thumbsup

Yeah I'm not reading that comment either, just like I didn't read past the first stupid point you made on the last one. Sorry to disappoint. I'm actually here to discuss rugby and not bicker. You did your best to pollute this forum during the RWC. Please go and speak to someone.

Understandable, we certainly dont, how can we with 31 straight wins? Mostly by huge margins. England win about every 8-10 years, this time it was 7. Last time it was 9, 10 before that, so it is reducing. For SA theyve had a lot of unnecessary losses in the last few years, adjusting for their disruptions, Super rugby, the quota etc...think that'll happen less now.

In fairness though you only play England every 2 to 3 years.

9 times since 2010 is more than every 2-3 years. Weve payed England 24 in the 24 years of pro rugby, its just the last four years thats been a huge anomaly, playing at least once every other year, or more.

Correctamundo.

The Lions dont count as they are an invitational side. The Barbarians also dont count either. Remember the Baa Baas are a club so not an international side.

Besides, if the lions never lost a game to the SANZAR sides then the shield would never be able to change hands to the other nations of the world.

Ha ha, luckily there’s never been a problem with that then. Simple really, it’s a national thing. It’s like saying why don’t the Lions play in the 6N, or RC, non sensical.

It's laughable. I mean first the Lions have to win a bloody World Cup (atrocious record there, having never even qualified to play in it) before they even consider getting their hands on the mighty Raeburn Shield.

I guess the logic is that it is mostly tougher to win a game than to lose one?

3 in wales and 1 in usa for the welsh games. None in south africa.
Point taken though england should have taken the series in south africa. Kicking was really poor those first 2 tests at altitude.

No 7&1/2
