Livestream: Next All Blacks coach Robertson confirms national team assistants for 2024

All Blacks coach-in-waiting Scott Robertson.

All Blacks coach-in-waiting Scott Robertson has made a long-awaited announcement over his coaching staff from 2024 and will front media on Wedneday afternoon to explain the selections.

Last month, the successful Crusaders mentor was confirmed as the next national coach, once incumbent Ian Foster completed his current term at the World Cup in November.

Robertson, 48, played 22 times for the All Blacks as an openside flanker, before embarking on a coaching career that has realised national provincial titles, a world U20 crown and six Super Rugby championships.

Since his appointment, speculation has run rampant over the composition of his coaching staff, with Blues coach Leon MacDonald and Hurricanes coach Jason Holland among those widely tipped to join Robertson.

Both have been confirmed, along with current Crusaders assistant Scott Hansen, while incumbent Jason Ryan – another former Crusaders staffer – will retain his spot on the team beyond this year’s World Cup. 

Watch our livestream of the media conference, hosted by Robertson and NZ Rugby chief executive Mark Robinson, at 4pm.
