Wishing we’d hear more about who Robertson has in his side. Some media is suggesting McLeod is in both sides, and I don’t see why Schmidt wouldn’t do the same. I read an article saying Schmidt doesn’t like dealing with the media. I will be very surprised if he isn’t some kind of assistant.
Possibly. He doesn’t have a huge amount of charisma, i doubt he is A household name. While I live in New Zealand, I don’t mix with rugby fans too often so I don’t really know.I'm just thinking the NZ public might think he is a bit of a lightweight for such a big job. And he is better as an assistant.
Good to know, but was it structured or unstructured attack?I wouldn't worry about that, Schmidt's Leinster and Clermont teams were some of the most expensive and attacking club teams to ever play in Europe. Wing selection will probably be based off different criteria than before but he won't start putting Keith Earls clones in there with the talent available to him.
The media echoes those thoughts and some of the public tend to echo the media.I think it's more about what the mood is about the rugby public in NZ and what the general opinion is about the coaching job. Us outsiders living in other countries are interested in this matter as it seems like the NZRU are dragging this out way longer than they should have. They knew Hansen would finish after the World Cup and should have been way more prepared to sign the new coach. Whereas Australia on the other hand moved swiftly, and got the coach they wanted and made it a done deal.
