So where do all these rumours, about who the proposed assistant coaches are, come from? Did Foster publicly say in an interview who he wanted in his team? Did someone leak? Or are these assumptions from some journalists which have been copied by others? Have these candidate assistant coaches said something that provides any basis for these speculations?
I know these rumours about the composition of the coaching teams from both Foster and Robertson have been circulating for the last few weeks, but has anyone actually read or heard an interview in which this has been said? I can't imagine any of Foster, Robertson or NZR saying something before it's a done deal. So how reliable is this info?
For example, has Hurricanes CEO Avan Lee said something about contingency plans in case Plumtree joins Foster's team, or is this also speculation?
I can't keep up with the rumour mill. There's so much clickbait. It's so hard to know what to believe that I hardly believe anything anymore.
