Handle9: Just when it didn't appear that the process for the All Black coaches couldn't be any more of a circus the Brad Mooar contractual situation comes forward. Understandably Scarlets want significant compensation for releasing him from.his contract early.

If NZR have to pay 400k to get him released, or even half of that, it's yet another massive black mark on the process. That is a lot of goal post pads and rippa sets that could have been bought if NZR had their act together.

 

How exactly? Brad Moar was not Ian Fosters first choice in this position as far as I can tell. Obviously, it's an option to decline the appointment due to the expense. 

 

At some point, contracts were going to be broken, breaking a contract usually costs money.

6 months ago there were a ton more coaches available off contract. Now we've got a prospective assistant coach who is described as "torn" as to whether he even wants to come and is going to cost hundreds of thousands to buy out of his current contract. Supposedly the coaching team was a key decision making factor for the panel.

 

This process has been a clown show from the start.

Interesting choice to see Robertson appoint an Ex Welsh Winger to the coaching staff in defense. He seems to have a reasonable knack of picking decent assistants and getting the best from his people. O'Gara was considered by many to be a very strange choice, but he more than proved his value.

 

I am half expecting the quality of Super Rugby to drop this year by all Nations. SA might be the best off in terms of new-found confidence against other teams.
