The Hurricanes defensive coach Clark Laidlaw has been named as an assistant coach for the 2015 Super Rugby season.

Laidlaw will work under new head coach Chris Boyd, and alongside incoming fellow assistant coach John Plumtree.

The Scotsman went to the Hurricanes in 2013, following four years at the Taranaki Rugby Football Union.

He has had sole control of the Hurricanes' defensive structures throughout 2014, and has also been instrumental in his role as skills coach with the club.
