Wales vs New Zealand | WARREN Gatland, the former New Zealand hooker who coaches Wales, doesn’t believe the All Blacks are ever vulnerable.The flatterer also said this week they could put out a fourth, fifth or sixth best side and still beat most other teams.
Gatland was purring because he didn’t want to rile up New Zealand before their rugby Test in Cardiff on Saturday (Sunday 4.15am AEDT).Wales has lost 29 successive Tests to New Zealand, including 10 on Gatland’s watch.
But if he had said they were vulnerable, nobody could argue with him. Since beating South Africa 57-0 in mid-September, when some observers believed the All Blacks were occupying another universe, the team has come back to earth. Wales vs New Zealand

The All Blacks have been vulnerable, and lost two tTsts this year for the first time since 2011. But even in the face of yellow cards, penalties, and a welter of handling errors, the All Blacks have still proved tough to take out.
Newcomers have had an immediate effect, even when teamwork has taken time to gel.
That’s been the positive for coach Steve Hansen.
“I thought 2016 would be a tough year (after the post-Rugby World Cup retirements) but we got through it pretty well and unscathed from an adversity point of view, apart from Chicago,” Hansen said. Wales vs New Zealand
