The New Zealand head coach gave his opinion on the new rule regarding expulsions and made reference to the possible sanction that Jordie Barrett could receive, after seeing the red card in the All Blacks’ win over Australia in Perth.
“I was quite surprised to be honest. We will analyze it, but without a doubt, we will appeal the decision“, said Ian Foster on the exit of the field of the fullback after colliding with his foot in Marika Koroibete’s face after jumping to receive an aerial ball.
The new rule, in the test phase during the Bledisloe Cup and the Rugby Championship, indicates that a player who is sent off can be replaced 20 minutes after said sanction by another of his teammates who are among the substitutes.
On this, the coach of the All blacks was clear and expressed: “All SANZAAR countries are quite united about continuing with this test“.
