    Martin Snedden to quit NZC

    Snedden has been offered and has accepeted the position of Rugby New Zealand 2011 CEO for the World Cup.

    I'd like to thank Martin Snedden because I think NZC has progressed under his guidance and from the outside he's never really seemed to try and spark any trouble with media or players.

    His role will begin in May 2007.

    I never had a problem with Sneds, but seeing as he's leaving, can he swing the All Black coaching job for Bracewell?

    He did a good job but a bit too ODI bias. I predicted that he would probably retire after the World Cup, too.

    Good luck to him!

    It's no wonder they allocated more ODI games, just look at how many people turn up to test matches here!

    Very true. Although I don't agree with a lot of things he says, I think Ian Smith had a great idea during that last match when he said there should be two permanent Test fixtures every season, a Boxing Day Test at the Basin and a New Year's Day Test at Queenstown. I think those could become hugely popular.

    The future of Test cricket in this country is at the smaller grounds - especially when Eden Park is redeveloped and will have dimensions too small for Test cricket by the ICC regulations.

    I was reading an interview with Anthony Stuart who is coaching the Firebirds. He said one of the biggest differences is the gap between Club and FC cricket in this country. Sounds a bit like what Australia are experiencing with their rugby huh?

    He also said that Aussie state sides play almost all their matches on test match grounds whereas here we play alot of our games on grounds that are never used for test cricket.

    I think the next CEO has got to look at these two issues.

    A one day break is too short between tests IMO.

    I watched highlights of the teams NZ field in the basketball and the soccer, hardly any people at those either

    Yeah NZ need to look at their structure definetly. Good to see Stuart coaching in NZ another Australian coach gaining experience so in the future he can come back to Australia.

    Good luck to Snedden he should do a good job.

    If he doesn't take the Rugby World Cup job or quits it in the near future, I would like a great level headed and smart person like him to replace Malcolm Speed, when Speed finally gets out of the ICC.

    He will be a great ICC CEO, IMHO.
