John Plumtree and his old mate Chris Boyd will coach the Hurricanes from 2015 onwards.

Boyd served as Plumtree’s assistant at the Sharks during the 2010 and 2011 Super Rugby campaigns, but those roles will be reversed next year, with Boyd set to take the Head Coach role for the Super Rugby franchise following the departure of Mark Hammett. Plumtree will serve as his assistant.

Boys is currently coach of the Wellington Lions NPC side, while Plumtree has served a brief stint as Ireland’s forwards coach following his acrimonious split with the Sharks after last year’s Super Rugby tournament.


  • Many have said it before, Plumtree does his best work as assistant. They should serve the Canes well. Good luck to the both of them.

  • Who the heck is this Boyd fella?

    Always thought the assistant coaches during those miserable years at the Sharks were the other two guys (too much effort to remember their names now).

  • @vanmartin (Comment 1) : Some still wants him as head coach of the Sharks, yet he’s not even head coach material for the lowly Canes. 🙄

  • Great for Plum and Boyd.

    Cant wait for the Sharks to meet the Canes, that should be fun.

  • @FireTheLooser (Comment 3) : that’s a tad harsh bud. He did a really good job for the Sharks. You forget in what disarray we used to be before Dick Muir and Plum took over.

  • @Uli Boelie (Comment 5) : ja Plum was a real Sharks in body and spirit and I wish him luck in his future, but times move on and so did the Sharks.
