Yeah I wasn’t serious Komata. On the first couple of days when Australia had 1 gold, we had none and they thought they had heaps more on the way in the pool, they were already ridiculing our team over here.
To be fair, they probably think this is a bit of a joke – since they really are doing badly by their standards.
I don’t find Aus worrying about NZ that much. It’s kind of a big brother / little brother thing. Little brother is always measuring against big brother. Big brother doesn’t really notice little brother exists. When Australians think about nz we’re kind of a big version of Tasmania without the subsidies. They’re always mildly surprised to learn there’s a rivalry.
