What Will Pinetree Think …

The All Blacks are using Telecom’s most state-of-the-art technology in their bid to win this year’s Rugby World Cup. Coach John Mitchell will be able to view streamed video footage of multiple angles of the game from the comfort of his laptop – which can then be used to demonstrate the opposition team’s tactics and weaknesses in the All Black dressing room at half time. Chris Quin: “What we are doing is trying to take out as many factors as we can that might advantage being host [of the World Cup]. We might not be able to change the temperature in Brisbane but we can take a lot of the other factors out.”
