The Wallabies coach had said, in recent days, that ‘The New Zealand position of disrespecting one’s obligations is disappointing’And However, in these hours Robinson’s response arrived, who said: “Of course we understand the situation and would like to express our solidarity with the Australian team group, but it is clear that someone has not informed Dave Rainey of the fact that in some weeks we have discussed the development of matters relating to the Only in sports.
“I haven’t read everything he said, but I can assure you that consultations with FFA have been going on for a few days, and last Thursday a first draft of a documentary was signed to explain the situation: As such, I know Dave. And I will continue to nurture sympathy for him.”

While Robinson responded to Dave Rainey, Australian Rugby CEO Andy Marinos joined the long-running discussion, and in his view expressed himself as follows: “It is true, we have had talks with the New Zealand Football Association in recent days, but it is also true that That we found out on social media the fact that the All Blacks were not going to show up in Perth, despite their appointment last Friday, in attendance at SANZAAR, a video meeting in which the game had to be resolved: we were very disappointed by this thing.”
Robinson then also defended himself from the accusations: “The FFA gave us time to organize a plan that would allow our group of 60 people to stay away from home for 15 weeks without any kind of problem, but that didn’t happen. Given the situation, we moved in. This trend: We believe that forced “pause” can help everyone to reorganize their thoughts in a difficult moment.”
