Well a decision has been made and Foster is coach it is what it is , realistically 7 out of 8 for the rest of the year is a must and I wouldn’t be surprised if we go unbeaten looking at our schedule.
Schmidt and Ryan should combine quite well.
Argentina v South Africa is going to be very interesting and I think it will go 1 each both winning at home.
Unfortunately I don’t think Australia win another game just too many injuries, though would love them too roll South Africa

Foster SURVIVES as NZR hails 'magnificent' win over Springboks and declares it's 'a new dawn'

Do you think you will still be coachingvthis team next test?

The victory that surely condemned Ian Foster

Yep makes alot of sense re Ardies defence and explains why Cane doesn’t link pass like he used too as he seems to be like Rueben Thorne where he wasn’t doing the flashy stuff but was working his ass off invisibly.
As you say Ardie plays different at super level and would change his roll to suit .
Like you I’d like to see SB get more time at 6 as Frizzell is injury prone . His work in the 1st Irish test was huge and he has clearly worked on his tackle tech hitting real low and hard .
It is quite clear how a physical 6 impacts our game especially an extra lineout option , let’s hope it stays that way .
Are Canes days as a 80 minute player in black done ?
If so this really changes our bench options for a big impact 8 to be injected for the last 20 min

Christie was playing from the bench till Blackadder was injured .
I wonder if he has any NH grandparents ????

Yep liked what the ref in the ab v sa game was doing in the 1st half though he did let up in the second half phantom

Yep agree carlos it’s not like they can say anything else

The victory that surely condemned Ian Foster

That was my impression too highlander or he was going to stand down when he got back but recent interviews suggest he won’t be quitting.
His reaction to Wilson’s question after the test smacked of a man who knows his fate

The victory that surely condemned Ian Foster

I agree digger and when Blackadder is back who in imo has the best work rate and can play all three positions I cant see a spot for cane but he looked like his former self on Saturday.
I’d really like to see Blackadder in the 7 jersey

Keith Quinn was the master of pronunciation well ahead of times and never got it wrong

TJ and Clarke are the best main callers in the game, miss Clarke’s call .
Turinui and Marshall are so painfuland quite often just plain wrong!
Maloney is like the old playstation rugby game caller.

After watching the Aus v Arg test if SA go aerial against Aus it’s going to be a tough night for Aus fans.

That no try call was a shocker Carlos , sent up as no try but later the ref sent one up and said he didn’t know wich I thought they couldn’t do anymore

Hi Geoff I seriously thought he had pulled a hammy the way he kicked it.
I do winder if there was a tactic for this kick as BB 1st test twice I think and RM this test tried it all in the same area.

Clarke passed mounga the ball under pressure he did the right thing but bokke got a lucky call on the tackle release. I think clarke passed because he may have been injured.
The kick from havilli was strange at first I though he had done a hammy as it looked like he couldn’t straighten his kicking leg but it was just weird

ANALYSIS: Desperate, dangerous All Blacks roar back as Boks get cute and get caught

Well played by the pumas they stuck to their plan and finished strong.
17 injured players is a huge factor and wallaby fans shouldn’t take to much from this championship as they are missing too much cattle, at least some players are getting exposure to test rugby and creating some depth for November and next year.
This was a huge step down in intensity from the earlier test , I cant see either team pinching a win over SA on NZ .

Coach's corner: Quade traits JOC must replicate, proof ref had a shocker and Cane's brutal reality check

It has to play on the mind of the receiver in the lead up before the game, it’s like physiological warfare

Coach's corner: Quade traits JOC must replicate, proof ref had a shocker and Cane's brutal reality check

Is offsides generally the RA job at this level though PK and if he is so pedantic at the ruck it should be on the coaches cheat sheet

No 12 looks good outside BB Nick

All Blacks team: Mo'unga to start, young prop in line for debut, Frizell named at No.6 over Ioane

Couldn’t agree more Geoff!

Just woke up to this 😡
Congrats to the saffa fans and cheers for the write up Harry.
Didn’t see the game so can’t comment as I’m in Coffs harbour playing oztag for Great Britain and the internet is crap. Yes it does feel dirty to be a Englishman for 3 days 😁
Have the Crusaders started advertising for a head coach yet?

ANALYSIS: Brutal Boks suffocate All Blacks despite early setback, exposing more problems for Foster to solve

Tough news I hope he gets it together and comes back stronger when he is ready.
Just a true warrior and well respected by every pro player in the world.
Really hope it’s not the media thats affected him

8 losses in 2020 super rugby !

Clarke returns for Boks Test as Foster told one win in South Africa or you're gone, and Razor waits in wings

He lost all 8 games as coach of the cheifs then next season when McMillan had covid he lost again. He is the worst super coach ever. Warren ball doesn’t work with kiwi players
