Flying Fijians assistant coach Jason Ryan will join the All Blacks.
New Zealand rugby in a release says the All Blacks have agreed to terms with Crusaders and Fiji forwards’ Coach Ryan.
He will join the team at their camp in Wellington next week.
All Blacks Head Coach Ian Foster says Ryan is a proven performer with vast experience at the international level as witnessed by the impact he has made on Fiji’s forwards.
Foster announced forwards coach John Plumtree and backs coach Brad Mooar have parted ways with the group.
Former Ireland Head Coach Joe Schmidt now formally starts his role as an independent All Blacks selector.
In addition to that, Schmidt has a key analysis role and will work with Foster on overall strategy and attack play.
