Extratime for 16 October 2015

From Extra Time, 1:00 pm on 16 October 2015

In Extra Time this week, can the All Blacks put the ghosts of 2007 behind them? We head to Cardiff as they prepare to play France in the world cup quarterfinals. We also talk to former All Black lock Chris Jack on his memories of that 2007 quarterfinal loss. A leading sports psychologist tells us its the fans rather than the players who are the ones getting superstitious, while it seems France are thinking about 2011 rather than 2007. We also hear from triathlete Andrea Hewitt the first athlete picked in the New Zealand Olympic team for next year's Rio Games. Equestrian Blythe Tait ponders the prospect of a fifth Olympics after New Zealand qualified for the teams competition in Rio and the Black Stick men have one last chance to get to Rio.
