When it comes to the sacred institution of the All Blacks, almost every Kiwi is packing an opinion of some description, especially with regards to coaches.

On Wednesday, Ian Foster was confirmed to take over from Steve Hansen as the new man for the job, inking a two-year deal as head coach.

The Crusaders' Scott Robertson seemed to be the popular choice to inject a dose of youth and innovation that many felt the team needed, after their turgid semi-final exit at the hands of England at the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

We took to the streets of Wellington and Christchurch to see how locals reacted to the news, and - to put it lightly - most weren't too pleased with Foster's appointment.
