Blackadder is part of the southern province’s initial list of potential targets to fill the newly-created role next season according to The42. The news broke yesterday that Munster were in the market for such a role which will see Anthony Foley stay on as head coach albeit with some company.

Blackadder, a former All Blacks lock will end an eight-year tenure in charge of the Crusaders at the end of the upcoming 2016 Super Rugby season. The Kiwi took over at the Canterbury-based franchise in 2009 after coaching spells with Scotland, Edinburgh and Tasman, and has helped them into four Super Rugby semi-finals and two finals.
