Ian Foster’s future as All Blacks coach will be on the line when the Men in Black tackle the Springboks in Johannesburg tomorrow morning in round two of the Rugby Championship.
Foster is under enormous pressure to keep his job after suffering five defeats in six test matches, a barren run that has seen the All Blacks plummet to fifth on the World Rugby rankings, their lowest-ever ranking in the history of New Zealand rugby.
New Zealand Rugby boss Mark Robinson had previously refused to endorse Foster beyond the first two games in South Africa, which means the axe could fall unless he can inspire a dramatic turnaround.
The All Blacks will take on the Springboks at 3.05am tomorrow while the Wallabies will face Argentina at 7.10am.
