OPINION: If you follow rugby league, not much should surprise you anymore. But the performance the Kiwis turned out in their shocking 4-2 defeat to Fiji in the World Cup quarter-finals is actually beyond comprehension.

It's not the result - Fiji have some very talented players, a close-knit culture, and it was always a matter of time before they claimed a big Test scalp. This will be a watershed moment for them and they deserve it.

It was the bizarre effort from New Zealand, both individually and collectively, that boggles the mind. Who the hell were those people in the black jerseys and what did they do with the Kiwis?

Coming off an upset loss against Tonga, there were still signs the Kiwis should be competitive.

There was certainly arrogance in thinking there's no way they'd lose to tier-two teams in consecutive weeks. I was certainly guilty of that when forecasting their future........
