Sharks assistant coach John Plumtree has revealed that he is keen to return to New Zealand to take up a coaching role at the Hurricanes.

This revelation comes on the eve of the first all-South African Super rugby Final, between the Sharks and Bulls in Durban on Saturday.

Plumtree coached the Wellington Lions in the Air New Zealand Cup competition, but returned to Durban at the start of this year, having won the Currie Cup with Natal as a player during the 1990s.

And although the Kiwi is happy with life in South Africa, he would like to head back to New Zealand if and when Colin Cooper leaves departs as Hurricanes head coach.

The 43-year-old Plumtree told The Dominion Post: “I know the Hurricanes franchise so well and everyone in it. I’d love to coach them.

“It’s been refreshing for me too because it’s shown me more ways to skin the cat, but we’ve always had the desire to go back home to New Zealand.”
