Definitely needed more All Blacks on there.

I'd have thought the CEO of Saactchisaatchi could have flicked an email around the designers to ask for their thoughts though...?

Otherwise it's clearly the Board of Directors for NZ who've been shoved together to rubberstamp a decision (or one of two or three options) that have already been researched by someone who knows what they're doing.
