All Blacks doubt July Tests will go aheadWith New Zealand in lockdown until the end of April at least All Blacks coach Ian Foster conceded the July home Tests against Wales and Scotland are likely to be scrappedWELLINGTON: All Blacks coach Ian Foster conceded Saturday the July home Tests against Wales and Scotland are likely to be scrapped as borders are locked down in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. The official word from the three countries is that the Tests "are still planned for" but Foster said he cannot see them going ahead. While rugby is on hold, Foster's coaching team and players face pay cuts as New Zealand Rugby looks to trim costs.
