Morgan & Poching appointed as Kiwi assistants

Former Hull KR head coach Justin Morgan has been appointed as one of the assistant coaches to New Zealand head coach David Kidwell.

Another former Robins coach, Willie Poching, has also been appointed as an assistant, ahead of the Four Nations this autumn.

The two appointments are for the duration of the tournament, at the end of which the NZRL will conduct a review.

“Justin brings great experience holding a head coaching position in Super League and being involved with the Storm and Warriors,” said Kidwell.

“Willie has so much experience as an assistant coach in the Super League and as a former Kiwi and captain of Samoa he knows what international footy is all about.

“Both of these guys are great people who will compliment my coaching style.”

Poching will work with the forwards, while Morgan is set to coach the Kiwi backs.
