(Reuters) - Scarlets coach Brad Mooar has agreed a deal to join new All Blacks head coach Ian Foster’s backroom team in June 2020, New Zealand Rugby (NZR) confirmed on Tuesday.

The 45-year-old will return to New Zealand and take charge as the All Blacks' attack coach following the conclusion of the Welsh side's European competitions, NZR said in a statement here.

Mooar completes Foster’s coaching team that also includes John Plumtree (forwards coach), Greg Feek (scrum coach) and Scott McLeod (defence coach).
