Yep interesting picks, I would of had Allen at top, very much a top coach for his tiime.
Gifford made a mistake on 1971 Lions, that series was lost to probably one of best innovative teams to tour NZ, not won, hey it's the Herald
. I always remember Phil Gifford as author of Susan of Herne Bay!! But he got Vodanovich about where he should be if not 1 to high, as I thought he made some real cock ups against Lions, including bringing Lochore out of retirement to play 2nd row in test at Wellington.
And perhaps a bit harsh on Alex MacDonald, took a team to SA with no Maori players, and he was really just the assistant manager, All Blacks that were left behind also played a test series against Wallabies and lost, so not sure who coached that team.
