Everyone on board with All Black coaches changes

6:47 am on 19 October 2009

The All Black coaches are putting a positive spin on the changes to their roles within the squad, but our rugby reporter isn't so sure.

In naming their European tour squad, head coach Graham Henry also announced he'd be taking over the forward pack, Steve Hansen will look after attack and Wayne Smith defence.

Hansen, who was under pressure with the forward effort during the Tri-Nations, says it is something they have thought about doing for a long time.

However the question is, if things had been working well, then there probably wouldn't be any need for changes.... Graham Henry says everyone is on board with the change.
