The Star 31 Sport Latest Christchurch news at www. Thursday May 4 2017 Mauger vying for top job at Highlanders .kiwi • By Steve Hepburn NEW HIGHLANDERS assistant coach and former Crusader Aaron Mauger will be one of a cast of three all vying for the top job. Mauger, 36, was announced on Monday as the new assistant coach for the Highlanders for the 2018 and 2019 seasons. The 45-test All Black will be the attack coach for the side, replacing head coach Tony Brown, who is shifting to Japan to help coach the national team after this season. Mauger has just finished a spell coaching the Leicester Tigers in England and was actively pursued by the Highlanders. Mauger coached the Crusaders under Todd Blackadder for three seasons before heading to the Leicester Tigers where he was was head coach under director of rugby Richard Cockerill. However, he was moved into the top job in January when Cockerill left but was then surprisingly sacked in March just after winning some silverware for the club. With Brown leaving, a new head coach is needed but Clark said the franchise would not rush that decision. With the appointment of Mauger it means none of the coaching team will have played for Otago. Highlanders chief executive Roger Clark said that never came into the appointment of Mauger as the franchise was simply looking for the best candidate. “They are not many Otago people out there coaching. When we got Jamie Joseph and Simon Culhane in to coach the Highlanders that was all about creating a new culture and environment in the South.’’ He was confident Mauger would get the best out of the playing group and would be part of this season’s review. Mauger is in the United States on holiday with his wife, Amy, and four children. He will head to Dunedin in July.
