The forwards coach & another coach were just replaced. Honestly-I think Ian Foster being promoted to HC back in 2019 was
a step back for NZ rugby. Nice guy and a capable assistant but not sure he has the chops to get the team organized and ready for WC and international play.
I would have liked to have had Scott Robertson from the Crusaders be put in as the AB HC. He knows how to win, creating a winning culture, and has turned the Crusaders into a dynasty. No one in Super Rugby can duplicate what he has done over the last decade.
The culture in NZ rugby is disjointed right now and it is starting to show on the field. There are a lot of “administrator” types that want to play “political” games and are ruining the actual game. That’s also why a lot of players have left NZ and looked for other places to play.
