Away from the training paddock, the new Kiwi coach has reportedly humiliated players that were late for sessions or missed the team bus. An insider refusing to be named has claimed that Kemble lost total support from many of the players after instructing certain players to serve the rest of the team dinner partially naked and other players were subjected to performing the haka outdoors in the rain while the rest of the party looked on.
It certainly is an unusual method to try and build team bonding; a method that looks to have back fired for the recently appointed Kiwi Rugby League coach as the team remains winless and not even competitive on the Rugby League field.
Reports from New Zealand are suggesting not only is Kembles career at stake; but pride in the NZ Rugby League jersey and the ever present battle with Union is at stake.
Facing a confident and in-form Great Britain Lions Rugby League outfit; the Kiwi’s will certainly be doing it tough to avoid a 3-0 series whitewash should they lose this Sunday morning. As NRL News has mentioned before, should the Great Britain Lions romp home – they will be full of confidence and ready to take on Australia in the upcoming Rugby League World Cup next year.
