Rivalry between countries
 
I think that rivalry between countries is something stupid.
Said that, how to explain the origin of this rivalry (Italy-France, Argentina-Spain, England-Scotland etc)?

Don't know the origins, but I think that as long as no one dies, its not stupid...

Aussie - New Zealand,

Most of it is sporting,

more of a Sister-Brother relationship.

Like I know...Some people needs a rival. If they didn't had an opponent, they'd invent him...

I think it might stem from sports or manifest most during sporting events but I have a few Australian friends and one Kiwi friend (they never met each other) and the Australians really seem to look down on NZ in some ways and my Kiwi friend sees Australia, especially the big cities, as having quite a few grave flaws. Of course, my experience is limited though and I've never travelled to either country.

It's a love hate relationship, and alot of tongue and cheek, if any do seriously look down on us or have some personal vice, then they havwe a few grave flaws themselves, we are infact, politically, very close friends and work well together.

Also because alot of Kiwis cross the ditch, I don't blame them, better weather, lifestyle, and wages.
