'I genuinely believe they're not well coached' | New Zealand's ill-discipline | Gordon D'Arcy

Ireland's tour of New Zealand will have force the All Blacks' management to get rid of Ian Foster as head coach, according to Gordon D'Arcy.



Ireland's tour of New Zealand will have force the All Blacks' management to get rid of Ian Foster as head coach, according to Irish rugby legend Gordon D'Arcy.

Andy Farrell's men made history last week by becoming the first Irish side to win on New Zealand soil. The match itself was not without it's controversy, however.

New Zealand were reduced to 13 men for a portion of the game, having received a red card and two yellow cards, although many believe that the first yellow card to Leicester Fainga'anuku should also have been a red card.

In addition to the cards, New Zealand also gave away an uncharacteristic number of penalties. D'Arcy believes that New Zealand's ill-discipline in this series is a sign of poor coaching by Foster.

"It is almost like your body is doing something but your brain is three seconds behind going, 'Oh, no! Don't do that! Ih, I've done it, oh sugar! I shouldn't have done that!" D'Arcy said.

"I genuinely believe they're not particularly well coached. That seems to be coming out in random little bits about their play."

New Zealand will have a new coach by the end of the summer

No matter what happens in the series decider on Saturday, D'Arcy believes that this tour of New Zealand will be seen as a success. He believes that Ireland have done enough to ensure that the All Blacks will have a new coach come the end of the summer.

"I would be genuinely blown away if this coaching ticket is in tact by the end of the summer," D'Arcy said. "Ireland have... created history and we will have forced a change in the New Zealand coaching ticket.

"I can't see how [Ian Foster] stays in his position. He was under pressure coming into the series and none of the New Zealand media genuinely accepted that we could possibly win on New Zealand soil."
