• ‘Canes comfortable without ball’

    While Chris Boyd is officially the Hurricanes head coach, he and John Plumtree work together nicely as peers in a partnership that's both seen and respected by the players. Plumtree's main focus is on defence, but he also oversees the forwards, with Dan Cron serving as the scrum coach and Richard Watt in charge of the lineouts.

    The Hurricanes have proved a good attacking team in the past but they have added more structure to their game this season.
