I haven't seen New Zealand play that poorly since the 2003 World Cup semi-final. There were some serious flaws exposed in midfield with and without the ball.

Australia are hands down the best defensive team in the world. But they play too much dumb rugby to make an impact in France.
Keep in mind the All Blacks played with Luke McAlister at centre. I wouldnt say they are hands down the best defensive side in the world, they looked pretty ordinary in the first half. But if there's one team that will derail nz at the world cup it'll be Australia.
