Glenn Moore: New Zealand’s head women’s coach steps down

Glenn Moore
Glenn Moore took over as the Black Ferns' head coach in 2015 from Greg Smith.

After allegations against Glenn Moore, the New Zealand women's coach, he resigned. This was in response to a culture review.

Hooker Te Kura Ngata–Aerengamate claimed in a post on social media that Moore's critical comments led to a mental breakdown.

Moore stated that “I disagree with the allegations she made” and that they were misleading in a resignation statement.

He was made the Black Ferns boss in 2015. This helped them win 2017 World Cup.

Mark Robinson, chief executive of New Zealand rugby, had supported Moore in the past for his role at October's World Cup.

Robinson apologized to elite players this week after the review found that the governing body failed to adequately support the women’s high performance programme.

Moore stated in his statement that the focus should be on maximising performance.

“I believe it is in the best interest of the team that i step down.”
