“It’s pretty clear to the players and us that they don’t really get it… we’re not there yet,” said Saracens coach Bill Parry.
South Africa head coach and South Africa’s captain Francois Venter has criticised the footwear as outdated, saying they are “overcompensating”.
But Smith said many players didn’t take the idea of the shoes that were supposed to last until at least the mid-1990s seriously.
ROBBIE MORSON/FAIRFAX NZ New Zealand coach Steve Hansen has said the style of the New Zealand side this summer will prove to be the most successful he has ever seen.
“It’s pretty old now,” he said on Friday. “It’s quite obvious to me it doesn’t work the way it used to.
“When it [the shoes] first came out, the guys were wearing sneakers and they thought, ‘This is a bit much,’ but then when they moved to a whole new shoe set they said, ‘It’s cool, we have these now’.”
The players’ feet “aren’t going to work much as they grow and then it comes to winter when there’s really plenty of snow and when you look at them, you can’t really imagine them going out with anything that lasts more than a couple of days일산출장마사지“.
Parry and his squad will be on the road in early April for the second Test against Australia, the first of which will take place in Auckland.
Venter wants to go through the test unscathed with a clean sheet.
A South Africa statement said it “is unable to comm경주출장안마ent at this time” on the reports.
This week, Saracens said they didn’t believe players had been forced to make the switch.
They also had a message for young players to show they still cared about the game, and their feet.
“We’ve been talking to the players for a week now, and they say they’re really excited about it
