All Blacks coach Ian Foster admitted Wednesday it was “highly unlikely” that he would be in charge next year, as speculation grows in New Zealand about his future.
Foster’s contract expires following this year’s Rugby World Cup in France and he doesn’t expect it to be extended.

“I think it’s pretty highly unlikely that I will be in this job next year,” Foster told Newstalk ZB radio.
“I keep getting asked about it, if I am going to apply, but the question (for me) is what is best for the All Blacks in 2023.” New Zealand Rugby reportedly want to have the All Blacks coaching staff for 2024 finalised by April.
Canterbury Crusaders coach Scott Robertson and Japan boss Jamie Joseph have been tipped as possible replacements.
