Laurie Mains needed?greenspun.com : LUSENET : The All Blacks : One Thread
I had a think about the All Black management/coaching lineup: Richard Loe, Kerien Crowley, Robbie Deans, Cowboy Shaw, Col Martin, and John Mitchell. All good keen hard men but alarm bells are ringing loud and clear for me, to win this cup we are going to need a little more than a hard nosed attitude. In what may still be a hangover reaction to the smooth intelligentsia approach of a certain Mr John Hart there doesnt seem to be the rugby acumen amongst this group of men to out think other teams(Robbie Deans being the only glimmer of hope). I really, really hope Im proven wrong but I fear otherwise and believe that Laurie Mains must be involved in some capacity if we are to win the world cup.
