'It's very fair': Richie Mo'unga responds to All Blacks fans in turmoil

The flyhalf has played off the bench during New Zealand’s disappointing run, with Beauden Barrett preferred in the No.10 shirt for the two losses to Ireland and last week’s 26-10 defeat by world champions South Africa in Nelspruit as they dropped to No.5 in the world rankings.

Coach Ian Foster and his team have been subjected to a bombardment of criticism since losing the July series to the Irish and Mo’unga said he respected the right of fans to vent their frustrations.

“It’s very fair,” Mo’unga told New Zealand media in South Africa.
