All Blacks fans fire back with video mocking the Springboks

The week after the first round of the Rugby Championship was a tough one for anyone associated with New Zealand rugby as the Internet was loaded with videos deriding the All Blacks.

It is now time for All Blacks fans to fire back this week after their side secured a 35-23 win at Ellis Park on Saturday. One video has made its way onto social media, which takes aim at South African pundits Swys de Bruin and Jono Mokuena laughing at the All Blacks after the Springboks’ victory at the Mbombela Stadium. The video shows the pair laughing, followed by a slew of missed tackles by the Boks and times they were smashed by All Black players in contact.

It was only inevitable that there would be a backlash from Kiwi fans following the stick they have had to put up with over the last six months, where they had only won one of their last six matches prior to arriving in Johannesburg.

Take a look at the video:

Even though the All Blacks secured the victory, there are still plenty of questions concerning head coach Ian Foster’s future.

After the win, Foster did not get drawn into those discussions, and said: “I’m about to hop on a plane and go home and mow the lawns around the pool.

“I’ll be given feedback, no doubt, but my expectations are I’m the All Blacks head coach and later in the week I’ll be going to Christchurch and assembling with the team until I’m told anything different.” 

New Zealand Rugby boss Mark Robinson said: “We believe we know where we stand and just have to work through it.

“There will be a board meeting at some stage … The board is ultimately responsible for the appointment of the coach. That’s to be determined in terms of timing.

“We’ll be making no further comment until that time which is likely to be the middle to latter part of this week.”
