I am writing on behalf of all of 'The Shed' supporters of the All Blacks. We are just annoyed at watching these guys play.

It is very hard to digest what we are seeing on the park. You have Izzy (Israel Dagg) hogging the ball every time he has it. He alone has bombed 3 or 4 tries through greed.

Then you have Ma'a Nonu, who should be given the boot. He couldn't pass the ball properly if he tried.

The only person who has stood out is Liam Messam. He has been the only player that has gone forward and not backwards.

Is it that Ian Foster is in charge of the backs? There appears to be no direction in the back line.

The boys are passing behind each player. Ben Smith's incisive running has provided a brief piece of entertainment.

I suggest getting rid of Foster. He is probably the worst person to have in the assistant coaching role.

Why appoint somebody who couldn't, in eight years at the Chiefs, win a Super Rugby title?

The idiot NZRU give him a role with the best team in the world - I struggle to understand that idea.
