Keane for North Har­bour

Nelson Mail - - Sport - Rugby

Kieran Keane has been ap­pointed coach of North Har­bour, tak­ing over from Tom Coven­try, who has moved onto the Blues. Keane, who played for Can­ter­bury, coached Tas­man in the ITM Cup and worked with the Chiefs and High­landers in the past. Even though he’s not from the North Har­bour area, the union’s gen­eral man­ager David Gibson said Keane was the right fit. Keane coached Ir­ish team Con­nacht up un­til May, but was sacked 12 months into a three-year deal, fol­low­ing a dis­ap­point­ing sea­son. He will get a chance to re­build his coach­ing ca­reer at Har­bour.
