NZRFU Board Meeting Last Night Decided ABs Coach



All Blacks Head Coach, Ian Foster admitted Wednesday it was “highly unlikely” that he would be in charge next year, as speculation grows in New Zealand about his future.

Foster doesn’t expect his contract to be extended after this year’s Rugby World Cup in France. “I think it’s pretty highly unlikely that I will be in this job next year,” Foster told Newstalk ZB radio yesterday.

All Blacks legend, Murray Mexted slams the NZRFU for even thinking of naming the new All Blacks Head Coach before the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

  1. The best thing for NZ is to make the All Blacks win the world cup in 2023. One of the possible ways of doing this is to pay off Ian Foster’s contract ahead of the world cup and select a New Coach instead who is capable of choosing a team from the highly-rated talents we have at present. A new coach would bring fresh air to the locker room and will spark worthy challenges for the players to aim for. Taking a loser as Head Coach of the prestigious colours of the NZ All-Black team to the world cup is indeed an unwise move. The formulae will not change much in technique and experience – as in selecting the wrong players. The memory of his losing history will discourage everyone, including players, supporters and, of course, the hopeless coach himself.

  2. If theNZRFU waited until after the RWC to choose the coach for the ABs, most or all of the best coaches will have been contacted to other countries. If they snooze they loose.
