Speaking on Sky Sport’s The Breakdown last night, All Blacks Assistant Coach Brad Mooar revealed that he would coach the South along with Greg Feek, while the North would be guided by John Plumtree and Scott McLeod.
Mooar said a long-standing tradition would be rekindled when the teams run out on August 29.
“It’s a real legacy game, first played in 1897 and then consistently almost every year apart from the war years until 1986 in Oamaru. In that game, Steve Hansen was on the bench for the South and Brett McKenzie was at the back, Damian’s father,” Mooar said.

Last week, All Blacks Head Coach Ian Foster revealed that the eligibility criteria for selection would be based on the first province played for.
