he has had a long time to make his mark and get the side he wants  

the current side is not much cop

Fair call

Hopefully we get a hard ass like Toovey to shake things up

Auckland will rise once more

Trouble is AP half the players would be crying in corner after Tooveys first blowup. Would love him as well dont really get why Kearney got an extension he has a horrible head coach record.

Kearney was just too nice I feel, had to buy into the culture needed to nurse some of these players through a season. He did a great job getting everyone on board and moving to Aus, however he was hamstrung by some poor recruitment which he may not have had a  lot of control over. Apparently their recruitment guy aint so great.

I agree the recruitment has been shocking - why on earth would you pay big bucks and a lengthy contract for an aging Adam Blair who was years past his prime.

While there is someone devoted to this function I think we would be naive to say that the coach doesn't have a major say on who he wants for his team.

On the flip side I can't think of one decent kiwi player that Kearney has developed and brought through

Time to hire a Toovey and if half the players want to cry in the corner they can leave - they won't necessarily be sugar coated if they have to move to Australia 

This current crop does my head in

Auckland will rise once more
