I watched the replay this morning and have to agree with many of the brutal assessments. 'Insipid All Blacks' would have been my headline..

Not sure Foster has much longer in charge, I was bemused by living in a state of denial interview comments Fozzie made...

I'm not really in the scene, perhaps someone can offer some better insight. However from what I've been reading over the years is grass roots rugby in NZ has gone through considerable decline.

Which makes sense, with funding at the community level being what it is, there's no reason to assume rugby clubs would be exempt.

Saying its there best performance of the year was an idiotic comment to make.

Doctor: I'm sorry, your husband died during surgery. But on the bright side, it was my best surgery so far.

Just finished watching the rematch...not sure I agree with some of the "Awesome All Blacks" headlines...

Definitely some improvement..Will Jordan is the man under the high ball.

Not surprised that NZRFU stuck with their man...have zero confidence that we will fire at the RWC.

They are trying out the reverse of the normal, where we are awesome going into the RWC and we lose. Lets take some pressure off the team, so then they can remain focussed.

I wonder what the discussions with Robertson were.

I'd like to think they had that much of a focused plan...I'm not sure being conservative is the same thing...

Razor would be totally within his rights to do the big OE...100% after the next RWC he is coaching at the international level.Might not be for us, but he will be at that level.
