Trans-Tasman Rivalry


The British poke fun at the Welsh and the Americans give it to the Canadians - and so on and so forth… The Trans-Tasman rivalry between Australia and New Zealand is no exception - Australians are the butt of Kiwi humour and vice versa, but when all is said and done it's fair to say we…err…. um … are moderately fond of each other.

Humour is a funny business:

Although it all seems good-natured and friendly with plenty of back-slapping banter on and off the field, there can be some good old petulance to be seen if you look closely enough. Here to start with, are a few put forward from both sides of the ditch. Feel free to contribute - we will keep this a living document and tally it up at a later date.
