Have to disagree with you here.
While a lot of people dislike Henry, not getting behind the All Blacks because he is still coach would be only something fair weather fools would do ... like being a Democrat and voting McCain because Hillary lost the nomination - a real 'cut off the nose to spite the face' mentality.
I still think we were on track last ...[text shortened]... ar - either which way there won't be more than 8-10 points in it ...
24-18 to the ABs.
I haven't honestly heard one single thing that Graeme Henry brought to All Black rugby that was remotely positive for the game. Throughout his tenure he claimed the experimental changes and rotations were aimed at putting the fittest best side on the paddock to bring the cup back.. we never saw a fit side.. they all went down injured and their was no cover except for playing guys out of position.. we never got a look in for the cup.. the campaign was a universally acknowledge disaster. His regime was supported from the top.. they all have to go.
History will never forget the disaster.
The reason I want the losses this year is the hope that he won't get to take the side to the next cup. I order to improve someone has to admit they hit rock bottom, were wrong and want to get things right in the future learning from mistakes.
I hope a successful Warren Gatland could still return for the cup build up and get us back to basics and the nzrfu have to remove the stupid rule that allows coaches to go where they like without spoiling national chances but penalises players for doing like... let the players learn and play the new game over seas and let us bring them home to wear black.
Listening to McCaw and others still apologising is a sorry state indeed.
LOL re Hilary Clinton the woman that didn't have the guts to throw out her dirty husband. She should go for a job in the nzrfu
Go Obama.. bring in the new.
