All Blacks vs Japan

All Blacks vs Japan

A TEST against Japan which initially seemed one of the most inconsequential of New Zealand’s 2018 season has become more significant and contentious because of coach Steve Hansen’s approach to All Blacks selections.

Hansen has selected eight new caps in his squad for the match in Tokyo on Saturday (4.45pm AEDT), the most rookies in one All Blacks squad since 1986 when the so called “Baby Blacks” beat France while most leading players were suspended for their part in a rebel tour to South Africa.

The 23 players selected were part of a squad of 51 picked for New Zealand’s five match tour which began last weekend against Australia in Yokohama and will continue with matches against England, Ireland and Italy.

Hansen’s rationale for playing a second string lineup this weekend, in a Test squeezed into the existing schedule, is to spare his top players for tougher Tests against England and Ireland. Most of the regular All Blacks starters have already left Japan.

Critics argue that handing out test caps to players who aren’t considered among New Zealand’s best cheapens the jersey and the All Blacks’ heritage.

Hansen and his backers have hit back angrily against those claims, saying such measures are necessary in modern rugby because of the workload international players face in a season that runs from February to December.

“We play so many Test matches now and we play so many Super Rugby games that it is a nonsense when you hear people say that they didn’t give Test caps away like this years ago,” Hansen said.

“Well, they only played four or five test matches and probably six or seven provincial games.

“Today we are playing 14 or 15 Test matches and you just can’t ask the same people to do it all the time and expect them to play to the level we expect them to.”

Hansen’s comments have been widely debated.

All Blacks teams in the era he referred to took on tours to Britain and Europe or South Africa which comprised 18 matches and three Tests, or 24 matches and four Tests, and which involved midweek and weekend matches.

They undertook those tours, some lasting three months, usually with only 26 players.

In past eras during the domestic season, some players played for the All Blacks one day and their provinces the next.

Those players also played club rugby and many worked fulltime.

The impression for some in New Zealand remains that Hansen has been profligate with the All Blacks heritage and disrespectful toward Japan, which they’ll meet for only the seventh time in Tests.

Hansen has also framed the match as a selection exercise with relevance to next year’s World Cup in Japan.

“This is a young side, there is no disputing that,” Hansen said.

“But, as I said, the expectation is that they go out and play really well.

“That puts a bit of pressure on them, but you get to see how they perform under that pressure which then gives you an opportunity to make some sound judgments when you need to about the selections that are coming up next year.”

It’ll be the first time the tournament’s been staged outside of the games traditional strongholds and with less than two years to go excitement is growing right across the country. Local hero a youmu guru Maru was just one of the home stars and attendants along with former World Player of the Year Wells as Shane Williams who finished his playing career in Japan.

There are some mouth-watering clashes on the opening weekend including the heavyweight contests between France and Argentina and New Zealand and South Africa. Host Japan kicked the tournament off in Tokyo on the opening night against the top European qualifier which looks likely to be Romania Tyson.

The tournament will want the hosted it to do well but from personal experience sometimes that doesn’t happen. So we’re but I think the Japanese would be great hosts. As a host country, we hope Japan will laugh will reach the peak that they did in 2015 but to be playing at home now the fans know when their team will be playing, who they’re gonna be playing against and what venues are gonna be out.

Jonny Wilkinson says..

There is definitely as you got to the last rung it was kind of like which group do you want and okay the one that England of landed in is the one that the conventional view would be the most challenging but at the same time there are serious arguments for why that would be one of the best ones to be involved in you’ve got to go there realizing that you take on the best you just got to be defensively, offensively, spirit wise, tactically, technically phenomenal in every area. if you want to win.

 

Bryan Habana says..

I think we’ll be relatively happy with the pool drop obviously Australia is the tough one and probably the favorites in that group. However, Georgia very good side that progressed massively over the last few years it is going to be tough but you look at some of the other groups. I think wheels would be relatively happy with the way it’s come out.

 

Shane Williams says..

I’m really excited with the prospect of playing the host nation Japan who will be rooming with the excitement of the way they played in the last World Cup and how they’re gone you know since then and you know rugby is growing in Japan. there’s a lot of excitement building around this. You know I’m excited about the prospect of hopefully being you know a member that squad because over I think everyone will probably be calling pool C.
