• ABs complete coaching team

    Former Kings assistant coach Brad Mooar has been confirmed as the All Blacks’ new attack coach.

    New Zealand Rugby has reached an agreement with the Scarlets club in Wales, where Mooar has been coaching, for him to return to his home country to take up a role with the All Blacks under new head coach Ian Foster.

    The confirmation of Mooar’s appointment completes Foster’s assistant coaching team. Mooar will look after the attack in the coaching set-up.

    As announced last week, John Plumtree will take care of the forwards, Greg Feek is scrum coach and Scott McLeod will coach the defence.

    ‘To be joining the All Blacks coaching staff next year is an incredibly humbling and proud moment for my family and me. The opportunity to help coach your country comes around very rarely, so I would like to thank the Scarlets club for allowing me to join the All Blacks.’
