What an amazing announcement to announce the announcement will be made sometime mid week. Great to see the lack of leadership goes right to the top.

Taking lessons from Jacinda. Making an announcement today about a further announcement later.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

RObinson also needs to review his role also that of the other Board members....

He should hang on. Good things take time as Rome wasn't built in a day. At the end of the day, rugby is getting highly competitive. Look what happened to the wallabies. #AllBlacks

First and foremost this is about a rugby team returning from a difficult tour on which they had to endure more pressure than any other team in the history of the All Blacks - and who overcame all of the negativity and won the hardest game to win, in the most daunting of all rugby cauldrons, which they did with all of their faults and frailties on display along with their brilliance and courage - The right thing to do is at least wait until the team gets home, and has a few days to celebrate their accomplishment with whanau and friends - and regardless of any announcements as may need to be made... by whoever... for whatever reason... And just to be clear... the team made their statement... on Ellis Park. They dont need to say anything more.

I support the abs every game but not sure last night was a great result if it means Foster keeps his job through to RWC

That was worthy of an impromptu press conference 🀦‍♂️

This is straight out of the Labour Party playbook, an announcement to make an announcement. πŸ˜‚

Robinson needs to go . Can’t even organise an end of year tour . Months ago 3 games northern hemisphere then last week we playing Japan on the way now. To bad if you already booked for northern tour already. No tickets or tours available to South Africa . NZR is a joke at the top.

Becoming like Jacinta, making an Announcement about an announcement

That tells me he's waiting till he has the support of his family for when he gets the sack. With mental health it's probably a wise decision.

I have an announcement to make for any announcement and that announcement is Labour party is worser than the All Black coach lan foster why nz going down hill instead of climbing up but they both worse and they both sucked lol and thats my announcement of the day

Do the right thing and fire Foster!!!!

2nd hand and why would they, should have announced they were happy to retain the Freedom cup got another year

Hope the fence he’s sitting on is a barbed wire one!

If Argentina plays against you like they did yesterday you'll have a tough game on your hands

We’ll have a meeting to decide when we’ll have another meeting to decide the decision that has already been made

Has caught the government syndrome. Just celebrate the moment , like Mils, and give a big yellout to the coach and team.

And this guy is a CEO - let's have a meeting about how you have handled this

Jason Ryan make a big difference in the forwards and that why they beat the boks .Razor has too joint couching staff and Leon the backline.

He had a meeting to discuss a future meeting... he could of just sent an Email the knob

What a sad sad day for the crusifiers they really need someone to nail to their cross ooh well can always someone else

Hopefully notπŸ€”πŸ˜«get rid of him!!!!!

What a guy

More proof that NZRU is pathetic..!!

NZ All Blacks rise up again to the top πŸ‘πŸ₯°you can do it❀️

Go the All Blacks πŸ‘πŸ’ͺπŸ‘πŸ’ͺ

Well amazingly NZ is still in this

Where is Ireland

It's going to be a super championship πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ’₯πŸ‘ŠπŸ‘ŠπŸ‘Š

Umm bottom today Lindsay Miller. Let’s hope there’s an improvement. Believe and you may still win this 3rd rate tournament

Pumas deserve to be on top after that performance. πŸ‘

Bit like the world rugby rankings it will change soon enough πŸ‘€#absarecoming

Nice see you in hamiltron Argentina πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ🏾

Bonus point win is 5 but we last on table with 4:how come

After rugby championship and spring tour . ABs will be back on top of the world ranking 😎😎

funny usually the other way up... but hey the AB's two hardest games are over, lets see how we go in Australasia

Most open in years

Stranding after Round of 8 All blacks clinch the Rugby championship

Anyone notice that the All Blacks just gave the Holders of the World Cup a shellacking at their own fortress?

Ive been living under a rock so what happened with the 4 try bonus point. Has it been scrapped?

Go Argentina viva Los pumas rugby

Dan Perry and the table will be flipped upside down after the next 4 games 🀣

Sa derde!!

As long as we won at least 1/2 games in SA we had a chance. Now we have Aus & the tines. Just need to be on point like today.

And a lot more games to be played

We up for the wooden spoon πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Pumas to play away against the All Blacks in Christchurch... no doubt it will be packed with Crusaders players ...

I haven’t been a big fan of Foster,have been wondering about his and his loved ones mental health lately,can’t be easy on any of them 🀦🏻‍♀️

I liked Julian Savea’s comments calling out NZ ‘s who have forgotten “ how we treat people and not to hide behind social media”

Either way whatever happens at 5.30 pm you can’t take away from this All Black Team, their coaches and support crew what an amazing achievement of the team to beat the Springboks at Ellis Park - their fortress at high altitude !

I haven't been a big fan of Foster. However, maybe with Jason Ryan and Joe helping out , I am is the right man to steer the team until the world cup. I hope NZR come out at the conference and back their man.

Apparently it’s NOT an announcement on the coach

announcing his own resignation?

And another interesting thing I noticed this morning. The South African coach win %, is actually not much better than Foster's. I think it was 66%, haven't heard many people asking for him to be sacked. Maybe that shows some NZ media commentators and public have been to harsh?

Miss havin the Sth African teams in super rugby,be a buggar if they decide to play in 6nations and northern hemisphere comps,ABs need hard games.

Who is the CEO of New Zealand rugby, so many ums in his interview.

Yes the broad has to go to

If Foster has to go so does The Board

that was a waste of time

No, it's been a good day but he won't be announcing anything remotely that good

Mark Robinson to address media on his resignation hes giving himself an uppercut an the ARSE 😁

No more Tri Nations maybe

Leave em to it. This is the 2k22 team and building. If he wins the championship all goods. The Boys support him & really thats most of what he needs.

Izmi Esmile

Sam Corrigall

Daniel Harding Chris Slater

Matthew Broadbent Tom Hardy

Amanda Watson

Best to stick with foster , change after the world cup.

might aswell let him see out next years world cup then let a new coach start fresh after it ?

He's throwing the towel in maybe

n on
