    All Blacks coach Ian Foster's coming through the other side of his Covid battle and plans to be on site for the first test against Ireland on Saturday night

    All Blacks coach Ian Foster's coming through the other side of his Covid battle and plans to be on site for the first test against Ireland on Saturday night


    Foster and three of his assistants have the virus - scrum coach Greg Feek the latest and he'll be temporarily replaced by Mike Cron.

    But Foster says after a couple of rough nights he's on the mend.



    Foster's made a bold choice and selected Scott Barrett on the blindside for the match.

    The in-form Crusaders captain confident he can fill the role for just the second time in his test career.



    Live Commentary Saturday night from 7.05pm on Newstalk ZB and iHeartRadio
