Johnstone throws his hat into the All Black ring
November 10, 1999
Ex-All Black prop Brad Johnstone has confirmed that he has submitted his CV to NZRFU headquarters in Wellington.
Johnstone, who was capped 13 times between 1976-79, relinquished his post as coach of the Fijian national team when they were defeated by England in the play off for a quarter final place at the World Cup. He is a respected coach who is regarded as having done a great deal for Fijian rugby, but must have only a very slim chance of landing the All Black job. It seems that the NZRFU is likely to appoint only from that group of coaches employed at Super 12 level and many in New Zealand are beginning to realise how self-defeating that policy is likely to become.
