When is the Spring Tour squad being announced? Is Japan a chance to run some of those without a lot of game time under their belts? Who would that be? Twitter – CactusBack – The players that joined the squad throughout bledisloe etc were part of the squad a month before getting any game time. Whats the schedule in Europe likely to be – mainly when will the euro players join the squad and will it be long enough to actually get game time do you think?

Wallabies walloped and Pumas pounded, now the All Blacks can prepare for their Rugby Championship's main course - with two tests looming against the Springboks. However, some are saying the showdown between the world's two premier sides has lost some of its sheen given South Africa's struggles in successive losses to Australia. The All Blacks were untroubled in beating Argentina 36-13, handing them momentum ahead of what will be their 100th test against the Springboks, in Townsville on Saturday. Rugby commentator Nigel Yalden spoke to Corin Dann.

The All Blacks have completed a three-nil sweep of the Wallabies in this year's Bledisloe Cup series, despite being reduced to 14 men in the third test in Perth. They outclassed Australia 38-21 to move atop the Rugby Championship standings after two of six rounds. New Zealand led 18-0 at halftime and were rarely threatened, despite losing fullback Jordie Barrett for 20 minutes for a contentious red card offence. Susie Ferguson spoke to rugby reporter Joe Porter.

Three All Blacks are missing the Rugby Championship - so they can be home for the births of their children. Sam Whitelock, Aaron Smith and Richie Mo'unga all have babies due in the coming weeks. The rest of the All Blacks fly out for Perth this evening for the final Bledisloe Cup test next weekend.
The All Blacks will head to Australia later in the week for the third Bledisloe match and the Rugby Championship. They were roundly criticised by Rugby Australia and SANZAR for not getting on their scheduled flight last weekend for the match. The team said they wanted more certainty about their travel plans before they left. They also now have certainty over the coach - Ian Foster has been reappointed until the 2023 Rugby World Cup. NZR chief executive Mark Robinson says it was unanimous decision.

New Zealand Rugby has come under heavy fire across the ditch after the All Blacks were pulled out of travelling to Perth over the weekend, citing uncertainty over how the Rugby Championship would play out. The move attracted anger from their Australian counterparts - most notably from Wallabies coach Dave Rennie - and from governing body Sanzaar, who accused the All Blacks of putting themselves first and leaving the other three nations hanging. New Zealand Rugby Players Association boss Rob Nichol spoke to Corin Dann.

Guest: Craig Ray | Sports Editor at Daily Maverick The immediate future of the 2021 Rugby Championship is in the balance after the government of Western Australia indicated it was not willing to host the All Blacks, Springboks, Wallabies and Pumas in Perth over the next six weeks. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
The All Blacks have abandoned their plans to fly to Perth this weekend for the third Bledisloe Cup test - but say they remain committed to playing out the Rugby Championship. The team was due to leave on Sunday to play the Wallabies on Saturday week but pulled the plug today after Covid-19 restrictions in Australia would see them head into quarantine there. Rugby Australia and SANZAAR both released statements this afternoon expressing disappointment at NZR's decision. New Zealand Rugby CEO Mark Robinson believes it's the right call in the circumstances.
