All Blacks coach Ian Foster says there is a possibility that his team could play the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians later in the year.
Foster says one of Fiji’s problems is that a lot of Fiji’s top players are still tied up in European clubs, and because the European club window is still undecided at the moment, they will not get released to play internationals until the clubs are really clear about what their windows are.
He told Newstalk ZB it is a matter of being fair to the Pacific Islanders and allowing them to find out when they can get their players – but they certainly are very keen to line up and play them.
Foster has revealed he and his management team have taken another pay cut as New Zealand Rugby continue to suffer the impact of the Covid-19 crisis.
Foster, who took a pay cut in March, added that he and his fellow All Blacks staffers had taken another hit as the wait for the All Blacks to return to the field continues.
