Jack Tame: Never say never to nuclear threat

Never say never. Have wiser words ever been spoken? Any way you look at it, the last few years have not been easy for anyone trying to predict the future. Whether sitting around a dinner table or behind a radio microphone it's been a fool's game to try and guess what might possibly come next. I call B-S on any serious person who watched Donald Trump's campaign launch back in 2015 and thought ‘That man will be President.' Sure, as the months past, the rallies grew in size, and the TV networks dedicated themselves to Trump outrage, there were many more clues. And many – including me – should have been less surprised by the ultimate outcome. But go back to day dot. The launch itself. Donald Trump coming down the escalator. I'm sure I wasn't the only one who watched that and thought to himself, ‘President Donald Trump? Ha. That'll never happen.' A decade or two ago, if you'd asked most so-called experts if Britain would leave the European Union, how would they have replied? Never. If you'd most of us asked whether in 2020 a global pandemic would kill millions and totally disrupt the World order, even though we had the collective scientific expertise and public health controls to control what was for most a reasonably mild infection, how would we have responded? Never. Hell,just a few years ago, what if you'd asked the average rugby fan if the All Blacks would lose to Argentina at home? You've got it... never. The truth is that in all of these cases there were little clues, little noteworthy kernels, that a more careful analysis might have identified and given us pause for thought. The economies, social fabric, and media cultures of the U.S and Britain had both undergone steady but significant changes. A World interconnected by cheap air travel combined with a growing anti-science, conspiratorial movement, and plain old human nature made a pandemic likely, if not inevitable. And let's not get started on New Zealand Rugby. I wonder, does the never-say-never principle work in reverse? Do seemingly unlikely good things happen, too? Could the World suddenly unite to stop the climate from warming? Maybe I'm just an Eeyore, but I struggle to think of examples. All of this is to say I dunno about Russia and Vladimir Putin. I listened to his extraordinary speech this week and although I'm cynical as to whether we in New Zealand get a full and accurate picture of what is happening in Ukraine, clearly the man is determined to continue escalating the conflict. But nuclear weapons? In this day and age? My gut says never. Imagine the damage! The fallout! The mutually-assured destruction. The World would never be the same. But then somewhere in me there is a nagging little thought. A little kernel of doubt. Perhaps nuclear war is unlikely. But we should treat the risk of nuclear war as anything but.

Many fans were caught by surprise yesterday when Ian Foster was given unfettered support to coach the All Blacks through to the Rugby World Cup. The New Zealand Rugby Board said it voted unanimously to retain Foster in the wake of the unexpected win over the Springboks in Johannesburg - a dynamic display which ended a run of three straight losses and was arguably the best performance of his chequered tenure. A delighted Foster explained how adversity had forged the team's resolve at Ellis Park and revived his own career. Officials resisted the urge to introduce Crusaders maestro Scott Robertson as head coach a year out from the global showpiece. New Zealand Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson said Robertson remains a valued figure but is urging the public to now swing behind Foster. New Zealand Rugby didn't respond to our requests for Foster or any member of its management to speak to us this morning. Rugby columnist and commentator Scotty Stevenson spoke to Corin Dann.

All Blacks coach Ian Foster has been given no assurance he will keep his job, despite his side's stunning 35-23 win over the Springboks in Johannesburg on Sunday morning. Minutes after the victory, Foster told Sky Sport he had no idea whether he'd be in charge of the national team for their next match against Argentina in two weeks' time. New Zealand Rugby hosted a press conference on Monday night, in which chief executive Mark Robinson said the organisation wanted to be more open and transparent. Without divulging many details, Robinson said Foster's future will be announced around the middle of this week. Robinson said he'd been in constant contact with Foster about the coaching role, but didn't inspire confidence he'd be retained. Robinson said the board would be meeting this week to discuss Foster's future, and had the final call on the coaching job. Robinson and his leadership team, as well as NZ Rugby's high performance unit, would offer advice to the board. Nobody from the High Performance Unit was in South Africa this past fortnight, but they have been analysing performance from home. RNZ's sports editor, Stephen Hewson, asked Robinson if he had a recommendation ready to take to the board.

All Blacks coach Ian Foster expects to lead the team to their next test against Argentina in Christchurch in under two weeks and is confident he has the full backing of his players to do that. New Zealand Rugby boss Mark Robinson fronted media on Sunday but his refusal to back Foster's future only further fuelled speculation and uncertainty. Once the All Blacks arrive home from South Africa, Robinson indicated the NZ Rugby board would review the team's three loss, two win, start to the season and ultimately determine Foster's future at some stage next week. The All Blacks are scheduled to reassemble in Christchurch next Sunday, leaving little time for a definitive decision to be made. Foster, speaking in Johannesburg one day after the All Blacks' 35-23 bonus point Rugby Championship success at Ellis Park that snapped a three-game losing run, made it clear he expects to remain in charge. "I haven't heard or read those comments but he's got a job to do," Foster said of Robinson's remarks. "I'm about to hop on a plane and go home and mow the lawns around the pool. I'll be given feedback, no doubt, but my expectations are I'm the All Blacks head coach and later in the week I'll be going to Christchurch and assembling with the team until I'm told anything different. At this stage, Foster is unclear about the review process and who will be involved. "I'm not too sure but what I do know is their job is to reflect on where we're at and to make decisions. I'm sure I'll get told about that." Asked if he feels he has the backing of his bosses, Foster expressed confidence the playing group are behind him. This was reflected in Ardie Savea's post match comments in which he endorsed Foster as coach. "I certainly feel I've got the support and backing of the All Blacks and there's still processes New Zealand Rugby want to go through. To coach this team, you have to have categoric support." Foster elaborated on an intensely difficult climate surrounding the All Blacks, and the personal pile-on that's come his way, after the team lost five of their last six tests prior to the inspired upset triumph at Ellis Park. All Blacks head coach Ian Foster. Photo / Getty "You get used to it. And that's sad, isn't it? I get used to the personal side but that's the nature of the job. They're the distractions I ask the players to put to one side. When we go to a test match and there's a big crowd or referee decisions don't go their way or something goes wrong we're demanding of our players to put those things to one side and get back to work. "In all honesty, I think the playing group have been demanding that of me - stop sulking, do your job and get on with it. Sometimes the answer is in the simplicity of that." After the All Blacks delivered their best performance of the season, vastly improving their forward platform, attack, set piece and high ball work against the world champion Springboks at altitude, Foster feels he has unfinished business and believes he is continuing to grow as a coach. "There's no manual with this job but you've got to trust yourself and the people you work with and then you've got to be open with all the different ideas you get and put it into a plan. That's what I've been doing. I'm a different coach to what I was 12 months ago. "You've got to remember last year we won 12 out of 13 games in a row and no one was talking about us. What this team learns is when things go wrong you certainly hear it. It's how we deal with that. Aaron Smith and All Black coach Ian Foster after the win over the Springboks. Photosport "You always know you're going to get some obstacles. You look at three losses in a row that's adversity a lot of this group, including me, haven't had. We have to fix it. Our mindset is about trying to move on and grow the team. We've got an absolute goal for a Rugby World Cup at the end of next year and in many ways this needing to be the launching pad for that. "I'm not resentful about anything that's happened the last three weeks. I'm disappointed we lost but I also think we're using it the right way to fuel a team that's united and wants to play for this country. "There's no doubt we had to move some aspects of our game and we've been pretty open in sharing that. We do work hard to improve and challenge ourselves. I know we get told what we're doing wrong but we're working hard inside our camp. We're very proud to be part of this team so what we got last night as a reflection of the growth in a whole lot of aspects. " With assistant coaches John Plumtree and Brad Mooar moved on after the Irish series defeat, Foster praised Jason Ryan's immediate impact in improving the maul defence and breakdown work during the past three weeks. "Jason and [Greg] Feeky need a big pat on the back and so do our forwards when they don't get what they want in a test match they are generally not nice to talk to for the next couple of days and that is because they take it personally and we have got massive quality in that pack, but it needed to lift and it has done." - Liam Napier, NZ HeraldSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

A confession: I didn't want the All Blacks to lose, but I'm sure I'm not the only rugby fan who felt a little flicker of satisfaction or joy as they unraveled last weekend. They were woeful. The Irish were superb. And for anyone who has ever prickled at the smugness with which the All Blacks and New Zealand Rugby sometimes present, the result felt like just desserts. It's true, I'm a lousy fan. At halftime I was slagging them off, but a few minutes later I screamed and screamed when Will Jordan sprinted off for that runaway try. ‘Go boy! Go! Go!' I might be an All Blacks cynic but deep down, I still wanted them to win. Crises call for cool heads. If the coaching staff had all been sacked this week, if half the team had been dropped and Sam Cane stood down as captain, there's a reasonable chance we'd be furiously accusing New Zealand Rugby of overreacting. But as All Blacks fans we demand an assertive response. A panicked reaction would have done little to help the team's fortunes, but whether it's the coaches, leadership team, or a wholescale tactical shift, something big still has to change. So far we haven't seen it. Ian Foster was contrite at yesterday's media conference, but coy about his future plans. That approach can't last for long. You cannot repeat the same action and expect different results. The best explanation for the mystery at this stage is that New Zealand Rugby is working through changes to the wider coaching team. Employment negotiations take time. If the All Blacks do bring in new coaching talent, perhaps it will go some way to sorting their lineout and organising more creative attacks. Regardless, Ian Foster only has a handful of games to prove himself. One final point. There is still opportunity in all of this. Yes, it's nice to support a team as dominant as the All Blacks. I'm a Crusaders fan and I don't get sick of winning! But often the greatest sporting narratives are those in which an athlete or a team overcomes adversity. Victory against all odds. Historically, the All Blacks haven't faced too much adversity. But here it is. The team is at odds and ends. The players are being criticised. The coaches and their bosses are being hammered in the press. Maybe they will falter. Maybe we're watching the unravelling of a once-mighty team. Maybe Silver Lake has bought a dud. Or maybe, through whatever changes are necessary, and through the pluck and determination of a unit that can only be truly tested when its back is against the wall, the All Blacks will find a way to rise up. They'll fight. They'll avenge their defeats. They'll banish a home series loss to Ireland to the annals of pub quiz trivia nights and truly live up to the reputation of the jersey. Maybe it's lunacy to even ponder a World Cup victory next year. But crazier things have happened in sport. And who knows? A year out, maybe the result against Ireland was just what they needed. Lofty as it may be, the All Blacks owe it to us to do everything possible to try and realise that dream. And we owe it to them, through our cynicism and scorn, to keep the faith a little bit longer.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

The media manager for the All Blacks has admitted she was the one who cancelled coach Ian Foster's post-match press conference on Sunday, saying in a post on Linkedin she didn't want him to "just be a punching bag for the media". Foster's future is in serious doubt after a run of four losses in five games, and the NZ Rugby board is meeting today to discuss the matter. New Zealand Rugby have been reviewing the performance of Foster and the team, after chief executive Mark Robinson said the recent performances were "not acceptable". Former NZ Rugby chief executive David Moffet, says the problems really start with Robinson, and the "mana of the All Blacks has been dismantled with every game they've played" of late. He spoke to Kim Hill.

The aura of the All Blacks jersey seems to have eroded over the past year, culminating in a shock two-one series loss to Ireland this month. Ireland sewed up the series on Saturday night in Wellington, dominating the All Blacks in a 32-22 win. In the history of the All Blacks - 119 years of test matches - they'd never been down at halftime by as many points, 19, and things only got marginally better after the break. Afterwards, coach Ian Foster refused to answer questions about his future in the role, and New Zealand Rugby then cancelled his Sunday press conference. NZ Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson did issue a short statement saying the All Black's performance had been unacceptable. Former All Black halfback Ant Strachan spoke to Corin Dann.

New Zealand Rugby has finally got the deal it wanted. The final hurdle allowing N-Z-R to sign a 200 million dollar deal with US private equity firm Silver Lake has been cleared. Chairman Stewart Mitchell has described it as a "transformational moment" for the game in this country.
