Bok coach to help Super Rugby side

NEWS: Tony Brown will join the Blues in a short-term coaching consultant role from next week.


Brown, who was recently unveiled as the Springboks’ new attack coach this month, comes in for assistant coach Jason O’Halloran who is on medical leave related to his diabetes.

“Boags [Jason] is our mate first and foremost and we feel for him, we hope he’ll be back with us soon,” said Blues head coach Vern Cotter.

“Realistically having Tony in is a stop-gap measure while Jason recovers.

“It’s a testament to my coaching group that things have continued on with little interruption while he’s had some time away,” he said.

The Blues play their Round One Super Rugby Pacific match against the Fijian Drua on Saturday. February 24 in Whangārei.
