All Blacks coach Steve Hansen has revealed he will make a call on his future before the Rugby Championship.Hansens contract expires at the end of 2017 and he is currently weighing up whether to extend that until the 2019 World Cup. The coach, who led the side to their 2015 World Cup triumph, was speaking to the BBC and said it will be a decision which takes into account a number of different factors.Theres four things Ive looked at, Hansen said. One is the family... is it right for them? Is it right for the team? Is it right for the [New Zealand] Rugby Union and can I still get up in the morning and motivate myself and the team to improve?So if I cant do all those things, I wont do it. If I still think I can do it and the players are keen on me to do it then Ill think about it.?Theres one or two Ive just got to ask myself yet and well make a decision before the Rugby Championship.He added: New Zealand Rugby have got to say theyre keen too. Im sure if we can sit down, something positive will come.The New Zealand boss said their recent 3-0 Test series win over Wales hammered home to himself that he still has the hunger for the job, saying I love winning and I love that team.Next up on Hansens radar as All Blacks coach is the Rugby Championship which starts on Aug. 20 and then attention shifts to next summer when they welcome the British & Irish Lions to New Zealand.Hansen believes Warren Gatland should be the frontrunner to lead the tourists, and added: If you get it right then youve got something special. So theyll be tough if they get it right. Jordan Hicks .35 million, one-year contract that avoided salary arbitration.

Walking around, you are more likely to come upon churches, especially of growing evangelical denominations like Pentecostals.Up in the hills, you can see small dwellings that look like stone huts jammed one after the other, in red and green and pink and orange. The slums of Rio, known as favelas, are the most colorful places in the city, culturally vibrant and filled with interesting people. They are also the citys poorest areas, often controlled by drug-traffickers and plagued by violence.Across Rio, you might hear gunfire. It could be drug dealers battling it out for turf, or military police conducting an operation. Firefights mostly happen in favelas, but sometimes spill out into the zona sul, or southern part of the city, home to more well-heeled Brazilians and where tourists flock.You will be tempted to capture all the vibrancy on your smartphone.

Your sniffer is not off. Thats sewage. How strong it smells depends on where you are, how recently it rained and many other factors. Currently Rio only treats about 60 percent of its sewage, which means the waste from millions of residents finds its way into the water. Olympic athletes competing on that water are taking a host of preventative measures to avoid getting sick.If all this made you tired, just about any corner on the city offers the perfect pick-me-up: fruits. It would be impossible to exaggerate the variety or all-around scrumptiousness of what you are about to eat or drink.If you dont speak Portuguese (and most Rio people dont speak English), just point at the reddish mangos, the green guavas (with pink insides) or fruits you may have never heard of like jabuticaba, which look like oversized grapes.Sit back and enjoy.----Peter Prengaman is Brazil news director for The Associated Press.---Follow him on Twitter: http://twitter.com/peterprengaman ' ' 'cs are embraced but there is so much more for the ears: pop, funk and everything in between, especially in any of the thousands of yellow cabs circulating in the city.
