Ian Foster on why he deserves the top job with the All Blacks

Ryan Bridge 12/12/2019

New Zealand Rugby has announced Ian Foster as the new head coach of the All Blacks on a two-year deal. Ian Foster will step up from his role as an assistant.

The 54-year-old has won the race ahead of the Crusaders' Scott Robertson and he joins Magic Talk Drive with Ryan Bridge explaining why he deserves the job.

Foster is unwilling to reveal his four new assistants, but there are suggestions he'll be joined by John Plumtree, Brad Mooar, and Greg Feek, as well as Scott McLeod.

NZ Rugby chairman Brent Impey said Foster had emerged as the leading option in essentially a two-horse race with Robertson, after an exhaustive and highly competitive selection process.
