Crusaders Coach Scott Robertson has not ruled out joining forces with his assistant Ronan O’Gara should he take over from Steve Hansen after this year’s Rugby World Cup.
Robertson’s side left Christchurch for Brisbane yesterday ahead of their match with the Queensland Reds tomorrow night.
TVNZ reports, Robertson says he wouldn’t rule out working with O’Gara in one day in the national team.
“Opportunities will come at some stage for him [O’Gara]. We will have a quick chat to the side, we won’t have that chat in the media. He’s just putting a bit of hype around himself I think.”
He adds given O’Gara played 128 Tests for Ireland he might want to be part of the Irish coaching setup first.
Meanwhile, looking at this weekend’s super rugby matches, Hurricanes meet Brumbies at 6.35pm today and Rebels will then battle Highlanders at 8.45pm.
