We’ve [New Zealanders] got a sort of tolerance to other other people — as long as they accepted the superiority of English values.
– Historian Jock Phillips
A lot of the things that we think of being central to New Zealand identity: being good at war ... hunting ... were values and experiences which actually in England, were part of the English upper class. And what happened in New Zealand, was that those values came to New Zealand, and then got universalised.
– Historian Jock Phillips
For New Zealand it [winning matches against England] was an opportunity — back to the big brother, little brother syndrome — to show that we might have gone away, we might be 12,000 miles away, and it might be 100 years since, but we’d figured out how to play the game and we were coming back to show our teachers how to do it.
– Rugby World Cup-winning captain David Kirk on beating the English at their own game
