Fiji Preview vs NZ All Blacks
Since then, fans have expressed concern over the way the Fiji team beat New Zealand in the physical battle. They outplayed the All Blacks at the breakdowns where they won at most nine turnovers and many penalties. In recent years, the All Blacks have been known for their high level of physicality. This was highlighted by their 2019 World Cup semifinal defeat to England.
Fiji’s performance at the breakdown in Dunedin last week was outstanding and they will be looking to win this important area again. The All Blacks have worked hard over the past week to improve their breakdown skills. Ardie Savea joining the All Blacks starting line-up in 2021 will undoubtedly boost their ability to compete in tackle zone.
Foster was previously Steve Hansen’s assistant. New Zealand Rugby described Foster’s appointment as a planned succession. There was a split opinion about the appointment, with many All Blacks fans choosing Scott Robertson to replace Foster. Scott has led the Crusaders from Christchurch to five consecutive Super Rugby titles.
