Through the Eyes of an All Black - Rugby Championship catch up with Nick Evans

Through the Eyes of an All Black - Rugby Championship catch up with Nick Evans

Last month we launched the new All Blacks channel, brought to you by AIG, with one of the new features being a regular chat with former Test player, Nick Evans. This week we caught up with Nick again for more insightful thoughts on the Rugby Championship.

Nick is not only one of the best in the game in his position, but he’s great when it comes to an intelligent chat and sharing his thoughts and insight on the current state of all things rugby.

In this video the Harlequins flyhalf discusses a range of subjects, including why the Wallabies aren’t performing and what they should do going forward, whether Argentina can be a force in the tournament and who their biggest loss was, and how, if at all, the All Blacks can be beaten.

“You’ve got to get them at set piece. I don’t think their lineout is as good as it has been, or can be.. Their scrum is good but if you do put the pressure on their 8/9 combination you can get a lot of mileage out there,” Evans says.

“The one thing you can’t give the All Blacks is free ball. You’ve got to kick accurately, either contest or get the ball off the park. Unstructured attack for the All Blacks is like candy – they gobble it up.”

Evans, who has obviously been based in the UK with his club for the last few years, also touches on the 2015 Rugby World Cup and which of the home nations he thinks will be in with a shout.

In closing he gives us a quick prediction ahead of this weekend’s Rugby Championship games, where South Africa hosts Australia in Cape Town, and New Zealand take on Argentina in La Plata. 

This feature is brought to you by official partners AIG. You can follow more of the All Blacks coverage and keep up with Nick’s thoughts throughout the year on our All Blacks channel
