Last quote by Steve Hansen

There is no point in trying to bully the referees publicly in the media. We will talk about it in private and he will get his interpretations across of what he wants and it will be up to us to go out and deliver that.feedback

NEW Jun 22 2017
Steve Hansen has most recently been quoted in an article called All Blacks coach implies Warren Gatland 'bullying' referee ahead of first Test. Steve Hansen said, “The referee has got the hardest job in the world, I reckon. With blocking the rule says that as long as you don't change your direction of running then you are entitled to run back and help your teammate. And that is the key. Turn around and run back and don't change your line and if your line is the same then you are not blocking. If you run five metres to get in front of someone then you are dumb. That is dopey and in that case, Gats is quite right.”. Steve Hansen has been quoted a grand total of 56 times in 13 articles.

NEW Jun 22 2017

Worry, is a waste of emotion. If the thing you're worrying about has happened, then there's no point worrying about it. And if you're worrying about something that hasn't happened, then make a plan to fix it so you don't have to worry about it. But yes.feedback

More than ready to do the job we want him to do, otherwise we wouldn't have put him out there.feedback

Jun 21 2017

This was a really tough team to pick because there were a number of players in great form vying for positions. I'd also like to congratulate Rieko (Ioane) on getting his first start for the All Blacks. His outstanding form throughout the season, including against the Lions, has earned him his start on the wing.feedback

It shows how physically resilient he is. That will be tested, though, in this series because he's had such a long time out. But he's a big man, a tough man, with great mental fortitude.feedback

One is from Kurow and the other is from south Auckland. It's pretty simple. They just have different upbringings.feedback

Getting one Test is a massive achievement. To play 100 takes a very special player.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Do I think it's a good move? He clearly wants to bring them in so he can have two squads. Asking guys to play Test matches and then a midweek game is tough, so it's probably a smart play. It's about as many as Clive brought in now. He [Gatland] should have brought them in the beginning.feedback

Jun 16 2017

Do I expect them to do something different? Well, Gatland keeps telling us he's got something up his sleeve other than his arm so we'll wait and see. He's started running out of time to get the practice. I've always said, once you have the style that works for you, you usually stick with it, so it's going to be a big move if he changes. He'd be a massive loss. He's a world-class player. There's a lot of respect for him in our group.feedback

Jun 16 2017

We're finished for the weekend and we've come out with no injuries. We get to sit down now and get excited about what's ahead.feedback

May 31 2017

You'd want to be there a week at the minimum.feedback

May 10 2017 - World Cup

They're one of [our rivals], along with South Africa, Australia and France. By the time the World Cup comes around, any one of a number of teams could win the tournament. England are getting better and better all the time, but they're in a really strong pool. It's going to be interesting. Will we play Japan between now and the World Cup? We'll have to wait and see, but it wouldn't be a silly idea.feedback

May 10 2017 - Japan

Everyone is saying that Pool C is the pool of death, and Pool B is easier. But you're in what you're in. England will be like us – just looking forward to getting here. They're a good side.feedback

There are a number of people who are playing very, very well who haven't been All Blacks, and there are a number of All Blacks who are playing well.feedback

Apr 20 2017

Our job is to make sure we keep a good eye on what they do in the games they play prior to us and try and get a read. We have to get on with our job, make sure our game is as good as it can be as soon as it can be, and make sure that we've got as much covered as we possibly can.feedback

There are always going to be surprises, with some people being selected and some people not being selected. And that comes down to people's opinions, doesn't it? The guy that has the last say is the guy that is usually coaching them. I think he [Hartley] would have been an asset, but I'm not picking the team. There is depth all the way through. That's why people like Hartley and some of the Scottish boys have missed out because there is so much depth.feedback

Apr 20 2017

It is going to be a very good side, and they will come with a lot of expectation, which I think is going to be interesting to see how they cope with that - a lot more expectation than they've been used to, because people expect them to win. [The squad] is pretty much what you would expect from Warren. He likes his big ball-carriers in the middle of the park and his big, grunty forwards, so that is what he has picked, and I would expect that we are going to get a similar game style to what we've always got whenever we have played a Warren Gatland team.feedback

Apr 20 2017 - Ford

You've only got to look at the five-eighths [fly-halves]. A guy like Finn Russell has been playing really well and can't even make the team because they've got [Jonathan] Sexton, [Owen] Farrell and [Dan] Biggar there. You have also got young [George] Ford missing out. There is a lot of depth right through all the positions. The locks are the same, the loosies [back-row forwards] are the same.feedback

Apr 20 2017

I think this is the best British and Irish Lions team that we've seen come here for a long, long time.feedback

Mar 14 2017

Eddie's obviously not very used to getting compliments. It's not about playing a game. In this case I – and the team – genuinely believe they should be complimented.feedback

Mar 12 2017

We always thought England had plenty of talent but did not want to work hard.feedback

Mar 12 2017

I'd like to congratulate England on equalling the record. It's great for rugby because we want competition and games that people want to watch and get excited by. Eddie has come in and instilled a want and a desire that probably hasn't been there before.feedback

Mar 12 2017

When the time comes it's going to be a cracker, isn't it?feedback

Mar 12 2017

Hopefully the game lives up to the hype when it eventually happens because there will be plenty.feedback

Mar 12 2017

To achieve what they have achieved you need a team. Look at their lock situation, they've got heaps. Look at their five-eighth situation, they've got two world class players there. That's the exciting part and that's the difference. They've got a squad who want to go to another level and try to get better every time they play. And that to me is better than having one or two superstars.feedback

Feb 12 2017

We appreciate the decision 'Izzy' and his wife Daisy have made and to be able to plan the future, knowing that we'll have him involved makes life so much easier for us all, and we look forward to the challenges ahead.feedback

To have a player of Israel's ability and versatility re-sign is a major lift for all levels of New Zealand Rugby.feedback

Mar 02 2016

Eddie has installed a want and a desire that perhaps has not been there before and a commitment to each other. We always thought England had plenty of talent but did not want to work hard but they are doing that under Eddie and actually loving it. Funnily enough, the harder you work, the more results you get so it is no surprise they are putting a run together that is pretty impressive.feedback

Oct 25 2015

It was always going to be close, they're a great side and they showed that again. I was really proud of our guys, they kept their composure.feedback
