@mariner4life said in [Poll] Next All Black Coach:
i was going to just make smart ass, flippant comments about this, but, after Rennie joining the Wallabies, i have found i am actually pretty fucked off.
So far, before the process has even had a chance to run its course, Gatland, Schmidt, Joseph, and Rennie (admittedly for a variety of reasons) have ruled themselves out. One has agreed to stay at a T2 nation, for probably a shedload of cash, but still minimal opportunities (around 10 tests a year, against Korea, and Hong Kong). Another has taken the spot of our national rivals, a team that has enormous issues behind it, and has just lost a bunch of their key players, but still comes with expectations of success.
So either NZ coaches don't actually care about coaching the ABs anymore, or, they already know the outcome of the "process" and we are being given window dressing for appeasement
