He was assistant coach of the Argentinian national side and mentor for New Zealand's Super Rugby and ITM Cup coaches, he first coached the All Blacks in 2004, and went on to lead the team to 88 wins in 103 tests in eight years, a record that places him squarely among the most successful rugby coaches of all time.

An accomplished rugby player and cricketer, he made his international coaching debut with Wales in 1998, and would later become the first man born outside the Home Nations to coach the British and Irish Lions in 2001.
