The coach of the Wellington provincial rugby side Andre Bell has been sacked after two years in the job.

He was appointed on a two-year contract in December 2010 but after a season review, the Wellington union has decided not to renew his contract and will be advertising the position.

Otago coach Phil Mooney will return to Australia at the end of his two-year contract in November to take up a role with the Wests Club in Brisbane.
