Today Collins was asked if she were Prime Minister, would she let the All Blacks come out of isolation early to spend Christmas with their families? 

The Rugby Championship draw was met with disdain by NZ Rugby as All Blacks players would be in managed quarantine during Christmas, away from families.

Instead of answering, Collins took a different approach and claimed that if she were Prime Minister, "the All Blacks would be winning". 

"That's the only thing you need to know about that."

The All Blacks last played during the 2019 Rugby World Cup, where they were knocked out by England in the semi-finals, before beating Wales in the third-place match.

Asked how she would get the All Blacks winning again, Collins said she would be "out there on the training field, giving instructions". 

Collins was on the West Coast today, where she planned to visit a whitebait fritter shop, seafood facilities, and to see a regional research institute.
