Gilbert Enoka and the All Blacks

The Wallabies recent last play capitulation to the All Blacks in Brisbane brought back the horror and heartbreak of a similar scenario played out last November at Lansdowne Road. The All Blacks showed incredible composure to rescue the march against Ireland when they broke out of their 22 and put Ryan Crotty over in the corner.  It’s easy to whine about New Zealand and how, more often than not, they get every break going, but if there are better examplars of “High Performance” in world sport, never mind rugby, then I’m a monkey’s uncle.  This morning’s Telegraph profiles their mind coach Gilbert Enoka and how his influence has seen the All Blacks snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
