Since Damian McKenzie injured his knee, which prevents him from competing at the 2019 Rugby World Cup. There is much questioning about who could fill the gap in the All Blacks 31-man Squad. Rugby fans are waiting for thrilling performances in RWC. Now you can book Rugby World Cup Tickets to support your favourite players.
According to comments from All Blacks and former RWC winner Grant Fox, some importance has been given to the latter of these 2 proposals. Speaking to Radio Sport, Fox said New Zealand did not necessarily need to add a third fly-half to complete the duo of Beauden Barrett and Richie Mo’unga.
We are pretty clear right now, but it’s something we do not want to divulge too much. You have to worry about your injuries. If you have a late injury before a big match, you run a huge risk.
“Compromise and risk are part of your discussion and we just have to deal with it. But it is much easier to bring a player to Japan if necessary, compared to the United Kingdom in 2015. “
With Jordie Barrett, barring injury, almost a certainty of being part of the team later this year. The All Blacks are given a safety net at the position if a player suffered a minor blow and missed a match. However, did not need a substitute who would then drive him out of the rest of the competition.
Young brother Barrett has a lot of experience in mid-season flying. Although his rugby for the Hurricanes and All Blacks has occurred mainly in the back, on the wing or in the middle of the field.
New Zealand’s Steve Hansen and Fox will take advantage of the upcoming Rugby championship to look at the balance in the team, possibly give Jordie some playing time at 10 or even call on a half-fly specialist as Otere Black or Josh Ioane. Before making their final decision on who and who not to take in Japan in September.
