Confirmation of the enormous rift in the All Blacks camp that everyone expected

While All Blacks halfback Brad Weber is dwarfed by his All Blacks teammate Sam Whitelock by 40kgs, that does not mean that he does not terrorise the lock.

The All Blacks shared a video of the Chiefs No9 tormenting his 130-cap teammate with box kicks while he was trying to conduct an interview.  One thing this video does highlight is the fact that Weber has a pinpoint accurate box kick, although if we were going to pick holes in it, he could have done with hitting Whitelock on the head rather than back.

Take a look:

The players will renew their rivalry on the pitch in a matter of weeks when the new Super Rugby Pacific season starts. Weber and Whitelock are both in the Chiefs and Crusaders squads, respectively, with Weber being named co-captain.
