8 days out from kick-off
at the Rugby World Cup, the All Blacks will mingle
with local school children in Kashiwa later today. The players are still acclimatising
to high temperatures and humidity since arriving in Japan. Assistant coach Ian Foster says the extra preparation time
is invaluable ahead of their tournament opener
against the Springboks. The All Blacks assistant added the All Blacks intend
to play a fast, attacking game plan
at the Rugby World Cup.
