Ireland have brought in Greg Feek as their new scrum coach on a two-year deal.
Feek has worked with the team as a consultant for the last three years but has now been handed a permanent role which will also include working for Ireland's national scrum development programme.
Feek, who won 10 caps for the All Blacks, said: "I am excited to be taking on this new role. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Leinster and have grown as a coach at the province. There is some good scrum talent across all four provinces but there is always plenty to work on as we attempt to maximize the growth and development of the emerging talent while also staying as competitive as possible at the top level."
Ireland boss Joe Schmidt added: "Greg played an important role during the Six Nations and the national coaching team are delighted that he will be joining us on a full-time basis. He will also be a valuable addition to the national scrum development programme."
