Former Chiefs coach Ian Foster has been appointed assistant to new All Black coach Steve Hansen.

Foster, who coached the Waikato side from 2004 until 2011, taking them to the Super 14 final in 2009, takes over from Wayne Smith, who in a somewhat bizarre twist ends up moving to the Chiefs to be take up an assistant coach position there to head coach Dave Rennie.

“This is a great honour to work with the All Blacks. I’m thankful for the faith that Steve Hansen and the board have shown in me,” said Foster of his new appointment.
