The year 2008 has to be, collectively, the most successful year for Kiwi coaches. Firstly, John Plumtree, the Sharks coach has finally brought the coverted Currie Cup back to where it belongs after 12 long years. In the good old KZ of N. After being in the Natal 1996 Currie Cup winning team John knows the pride of being a Natalian and how the province has yearned for that prestigous old trophy that South Africans have been fighting over for 119 years. Thanks Plummy! A list of the ahievements by Kiwi coaches this year: Winning the Currie Cup: John Plumtree Winning the 6N Grandslam: Warren Gatland Winning the Tri-Nations: Graham Henry Winning the S14: Robbie Deans Winning the Air NZ Cup: Todd Blackadder Winning the Pacific Nations Cup: Donny Stevenson That is every major competition in the SH and the biggest competition in the NH. Not bad.
