All Black cheap shots
WATCH this collection of off-the-ball incidents by New Zealand in their last four matches – a stark reminder to All Black coach Steve Hansen that his team is NOT so squeaky clean as he intimated at a media briefing.
Hansen engaged South African rival Rassie Erasmus in a war-of-words in the build-up to their much-anticipated World Cup opening round match on Saturday.
Hansen told Erasmus to ‘lay off’ referee Jerome Garcès as the war of words escalated.
Hansen accused Erasmus of “trying to put pressure on the referee” after the Springbok coach lead what appeared to be an orchestrated South African campaign targeting the match official.
But Hansen said it wouldn’t work, adding the referees “are not stupid people”.
Maybe this will refresh Hansen’s memory of his own team’s underhanded tactics.
