Dumped All Black coach John Hart to coach Manu Samoa?
February 15, 2000
Bryan Williams' replacement expected to be announced by the end of the month.
The New Zealand Press Association has said that Hart and former Auckland coach Maurice Trapp are among contenders to coach Manu Samoa.The director of their rugby union, Michelle Boag, would not confirm who or how many coaches were in the running for the job.
Neither former Counties-Manukau coach Mac McCallion , who unsuccessfully sought the Fijian coaching job won by Australian Greg Smith, nor former Waikato coach John Boe are thought to be in the running for the Samoan position.Boe said his interests lay in trying to secure the New Zealand Colts coaching job , and for that he has put a proposal to the NZRFU.
