    The All Blacks coaching makeup has had a high level of continuity since 2004, that is likely to continue with Foster and McLeod staying involved. The culture and structure that Henry created which has been maintained is pretty much the world benchmark.
    the Big question is does Foster want the top job? If the All Blacks win this WC and Hansen endorses Foster. How can they NOT give Foster the job?
    Then it becomes a question of who out of Gatland, Schmidt, Renee & Robinson will be willing to take an assistant role then move into the top job after Foster??
    I think Renee has already turned down an assistant job. Gatland seems to have an ego as well but he and Foster should get on very well they did play together.
    Interesting times, obviously a lot rides on this WC.

    A kiwi coaching the Wallabies, I'm sure that will go well :D
    jokes of course, looking back I bet the Aussies wished they had kept deans on.

    I don’t see foster being assistant again, I think he wants to step into a head coach role.

    I don’t see gatland being an assistant, I think he feels he’s ready for the abs top job and won’t want to contribute to a different head coach’s success.

    I can’t see Jamie Joseph as an assistant.

    I reckon I can see Rennie as an assistant

    I can see Robertson as an assistant.
