Ronan O'Gara admits that playing All Blacks for many years has been often "confronted with monsters with four legs and four hands".
The Irish legend, now winning gratitude for her acumen training in the Crusaders, lost to New Zealand all 13 times as they played
But in his persuasive columnist for the printed edition Friday Ekaminer Sport, he explains that the dynamics of the conflict between Ireland and New Zealand have changed, even though all Negroes are still a reference to the game.
He writes: "Do not feel bad about Hansen's beautiful all blacks, they are not nice." "There is no beauty at this level, let's correct it." To be so good, you have to be absolutely merciless, and your thinking must be the same. "
O'Gara says the pressure on Steve Hansen and his players is uncoordinated, yet the coach and players remain an oasis of calm.
"It's not a bad time to have a little respect for what New Zealand continues to do annually, a year. They have the right to lose the game, although
"Each individual game they play against the opponent's player plays 20% above themselves because they are all black in the other corner.
"They must be tired of playing finals in the World Cup finals, because that's the opposition that every test runs. Every time.
"Place yourself in Beauden Barrett shoes, or Dan Carter before him, or Kieran Read or Sam Vhitelock. It's a fair challenge to dive into it and lift it up every time."
