Yeah no way Fozzie fires all his assistants to save his own skin.

Won't happen.

Unimaginable.

It would be the most indecent, unchivalrous manoeuvre in rugby football bureaucratic history.

Clearly I don't follow the detail of All Black particularly closely, but the demise of Plumtree Mooar seems odd. I always thought that Plumtree was quality.

Isn't this all a bit weird? Surely at this point the HC is removed and a new guy looks to who he wants?

They will save that move till the week before the Bledisloe

I thought Plumtree was ok too, but apparently reviewed pretty poorly last year, and he Smit at Sharks fired him a few years back, so not sure what story is. Think perhaps Mooar was a bit of a surprise, but can understand the attack has looked disjointed an awful lot.

Well if it's true what I reading today warms my heart, seemd a plan for AB XV to play Springboks 'A' , and also NZ under 19 doing 3 match tour of South Africa. Hey it seems we remembering apart from style of rugby being good for our players, for me South Africa is still our proper rugby rival, all others in the end are just not as important!!!!

Casually trying to cook those history books too.

"If you look back to when we were really successful from about 2010 through to 2019, which was our most successful era..."

Pull the other one Jabba. Once Richie and the foundations built by Henry and Smith left you got spanked by England, failed to beat the Lions for the first time in nearly half a century, and generally bumbled along with a full 'she'll be right Fozzie, I have a cunning plan to do the same thing since 2012' attitude.

TOTALLY.

Hansen sounds hurt and backed into a corner, hanging on forlornly to his precious legacy while, just like his incumbent, COMPLETELY failing to acknowledge HE was part of the fucking problem. So glad his legacy is shot to shit. Henry and Smith got them there in 2011 and 2015, Hansen just took over the Golden G-G-Train and by 2017 had fucked the whole thing to shit. And, worst for him, he knows that WE all know it and no amount of having a crying to the media about how it's all everyone else's fault mummy, not me and Fozzie, no mummy not us, ain't going to realign this derailed runaway train of a narrative fucking LOLLL.

NZRU cashed out with the private equity at the right time it seems. All Blacks brand is In decline at the moment
I was just thinking this, Silver Lake can't be too happy. I wonder how much the recent losses have devalued the brand.

God damn but isn't that just a thing of beauty.

Welcome to the last 10 years (minus 2015) of being a Wallaby fan.
That could be a good boost for the
dear old Bledisloe. So WBs couldn't match the ABs in their best years so the ABs low their level to match the WBs. Could be a competition similar to State of Origin, fantastic in terms of marketing and money.

That means, sold out stadiums and increasing viewers from an Aussie perspective. Too early to say it but who knows

Just one more week to go now until the nightmares are over :cool:

Well, some of them. Robinson can be the next on the block for enabling the whole fiasco, as well as overseeing several other poor outcomes.
