Everybody wants Joe Schmidt!

It's no secret the Joe Schmidt is weighing up his options, and has discussed going back to New Zealand, but ultimately he must also be angling for the All Black job. Super Rugby Highlanders want to talk to him, and now the Chiefs do too. At the end of the day though, All Black incumbent Steve Hansen has to leave his job before anything happens,  and he's making the wrong noises about that for the moment. So let's cross fingers that Joe stay put!

I watched a fair amount of Super Rugby, and what has to stick out is the power of the New Zealand, smiting all and sundry before them, Australian, South African, Argentinian, home or away, it doesn't matter. You feel like they could field two sides in the Rugby Championship and come first and second. And no lie, the handling skills of the Highlanders forwards are way better than the Cheetah's backs - it's not even close.
