I haven't seen any evidence that AB fans want the team to fail so that it reflects badly on Foster. That's just a dishonest post.
I am one of the most anti-Foster posters on this forum and I've said repeatedly that I'd love to be proven wrong, and for him to lead the AB's to great success. I've seen no evidence of this happening though.
And after todays showing I am now of the opinion that Foster should go, along with all his assistants. Nothing I saw today made me think we were heading in the right direction and i cant recall such poor defence and poor general play at times. This is a mark of a poorly coached team.
They all need to go, but we wont see that because of the nepotism and incest within NZR and I don't see us getting past the semi's at the next RWC with this shower.
While I agree that appointing Foster was a mistake, ther is a lot of bullshit in this post.
Out of all the things you could have picked, defence was a clear strength of the AB’s over the first two games...
I'm assuming les is taking the piss out of AC and that post is very tongue in cheek.
Les posted during the game on the same theme and he’s making a reasonable point... too many times there’s no apparent structure to what the ABs are doing, defense wise. Comparisons to past teams were made where players would automatically run in support and a defensive line was maintained. What we seem to be seeing now is extended periods where individual talent and commitment keep us in the game, not a game plan.
Yes, they defended well. Heroically for a while... on the line. How did they get to that point, though?
