Former Munster star Tyler Blindall joins New Zealand’s hurricane coaching team.
Revealed Limerick Leader In the coming weeks, the former out-half blind man is returning home to take up a coaching position with the Super Rugby team.
Blendall, 30, announced his retirement from playing professional rugby last May following a neck injury.
Another former Munster player, Jason Holland, is currently the head coach of Hurricane.
New Zealand Blindall made 62 appearances for Munster, making his provincial debut against Bennett Rugby in September 2015.
Playing mainly out-half, he lined up in the first center, captained 11 times, made five attempts and scored 352 points.
A former New Zealand star, Bleemdale, joined the province from the cross at the end of January 2015. It was the start of his 27-year-old 25-year-old.
In the following months, Bliondall was involved in back coaching at Gariovan.
Speaking of his switch to the Hurricanes coaching set-up, Blemdale said: “The Hurricanes want to develop skills in the team. Becoming part of a management team makes them men, rugby players and their skills.
“Getting closer to our families is the obvious benefit of moving home. We are happy that our children have been able to connect with our families more often, and this will be a great help to me and my wife as we settle down after the big move. “
Blindall says coaching has always been his passion and a career he wants to pursue in his post-rugby life.
After hanging the boot, he began to reach for connections for advice.
It was a great way to gather some knowledge and discuss rugby and coaching at a time when you couldn’t play in physical coaching. ”
“A few months in the Dutch line [Jason Holland] Contacted and asked about my condition, what my plan is going forward, if I want to express my interest in the role of the hurricane – I immediately said yes! His relationship with Munster probably gave him the opportunity to chat with his connections and get some honest feedback on my training potential as a person. ”
Hurricane head coach Jason Holland said Blaindall’s rugby knowledge is a valuable asset to the team.
An experienced player who has played the game in super rugby as a player, he has recently made his mark in the Northern Hemisphere rugby world as a player and more recently as a coach. He has an expert rugby brain and will challenge our coaching team and players to grow and innovate.
Blendall, who watched the 2020 Super Rugby Otorova match from his home in Limerick, said he was inspired by the spectators and the energy generated by the match
“You see the fights going on week after week. High pressure games with small margins. It was a great competition to nurture established players and young talent in New Zealand rugby. ”
