of all blacks It came as far as New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) bosses to recruit Robertson in August only to keep faith in incumbent Ian Foster instead.
Robertson has made 22 appearances for the All Blacks and has been a successful coach, leading the Crusaders to six Super Rugby titles.
The 48-year-old is seen as one of England’s front-runners to replace Eddie Jones after the 2023 World Cup.
Robertson is thought to be keen on the role, and his former Crusaders teammate Marshall admitted that the in-demand coach could easily be swayed by England’s interest.
“Scott Robertson was quite disappointed in his heart as he lost a little bit of faith in New Zealand Rugby who changed his mind after making some promises to him,” Marshall said. rice field. Evening Standard Rugby Podcast.
“So whatever happens at the Rugby World Cup, would you trust him to manage the All Blacks? Because they’ve said so before and it hasn’t happened.
“So I think he’s a little bit worried about going through this. If the All Blacks win the World Cup and they don’t offer him a job, at that moment his door is very tight. It’s when there’s a team that’s beating them up.”
Marshall won 81 caps in a ten-year Test stint in New Zealand between 1995 and 2005 before heading to Europe for five more years of club rugby.

Marshall and Daraglio were the two captains when England drew 26–26 with New Zealand at Twickenham in 1997.
Former New Zealand scrum-half Marshall also revealed exactly why Robertson is a hot commodity in coaching.
“He’s very good at creating culture. A good coach has the ability to bring together a group of other people around a team to make it work and create a culture,” Marshall said.
“Culture is about making people happy in the environment. Every team is in a multicultural environment with different backgrounds and it is important to keep the team and their families happy.
“He’s great at setting themes and creating goals for players and teams to achieve success.
“He’s got a very good mind for the game, but he also has great people under him who help him implement things.
“You see people rallying around him when he succeeds or when he wins, like at breakdancing celebrations, because he’s part of the team.
“And that’s the point. Players want to be in an environment where they thrive.”
