The vitriol toward Foster and Cane is unhinged. I honestly feel pretty disgusted with how NZ fans on the whole are dealing with losses against good quality, well coached teams, as if we are simply unable to comprehend that we may not, right now, be the best team in the world.
We were beaten by a better team who outplayed us. We need to make some changes, possibly including a change in coach or captain, but people need to understand where the coaches role ends and the players responsibility starts. We had all the motivation we should have needed to
play well and strongly, and didn't for large parts of the game. The team seems out of sync. Our tactics aren't really working, but our skill execution is also having a problem. Those who think swapping coaches is magically going to fix all ails are dreaming in my view. I honestly feel a few weeks extra together, hopefully without covid disruptions, may help. We are capable of being an excellent team, but we don't seem to be gelling too well right now.
