New Zealand's media were revelling in their team's 21-3 over the British and Irish Lions with the weekend newspapers all taking aim at the tourists.
Former All Blacks coach Laurie Mains, writing in the Sunday News tabloid, said the result had exposed the Lions as a weak team.
"The Lions proved what I have been saying since they first touched down here. They are the worst Lions team to come to New Zealand," he wrote.
Most of the newspapers focused on the All Blacks' domination in the forwards, pointing out that the Lions had boasted of a significant advantage in that area.
"Finally the over-used line about northern hemisphere forwards being more dominant than the rest of the world has been blown out of the water," former All Blacks captain Taine Randall said.
Lions coach Clive Woodward's decision to choose so many Englishmen in his team even though Wales were crowned Six Nations champions was also criticised by New Zealanders.
"The pre-match predictions were proved true. The Lions were too old, too slow and too English," journalist Michael Laws wrote in the Sunday Star Times broadsheet.
Woodward's selections came under fire from former Wales and Lions fullback JPR Williams in his column in the Sunday News. "Sir Clive Woodward has a mutiny on his hands. He's created two teams - an England team and a rest-of-them team."
While most New Zealanders were gloating over the win, though, and predicting a series whitewash, former All Blacks fly-half Grant Fox offered a sobering warning.
"For all the authority with which the All Blacks outplayed the Lions all over the park I am still reluctant to write off the tourists just yet," he said. "A wounded animal is always dangerous."
