Smith is Black Ferns technical coach

Former All Black and New Zealand rugby assistant coach Wayne Smith has signed as the technical coach for the Black Ferns ahead of this year's World Cup.
 
Smith, who was part of the All Blacks set-up for 16 years, helped them win the 2011 and 2015 World Cups.
 
The 64-year old said he was inspired to come out of retirement by a commitment he made to his late friend Laurie O'Reilly, the first coach of the Black Ferns.
 
The Black Ferns are aiming to secure their sixth World Cup triumph when they host the tournament between 8 October and 12 November this year.
 
However, they suffered four autumn Test defeats by France and England.
