Laurie is said to be the best *technical* coach the All Blacks have had
for ages. He used to lack a little on the political/management side
which is sadly necessary now [but not if you're a foreigner in SA] and
also in the selection / planning area. I think he could still offer a
lot to *NZ* rugby but the NZRFU seem to have some weird policy of never
using ex-AB coaches again - imagine Mains and Wyllie coaching a S12 team
:-)

Well now Pieter, with your name, surely you know the answer to that one as
well as I do?

IMHO the series in the First World War were a lot better. BA Goes
