Wellington - Former New Zealand scrum coach Mike Cron has accepted a role as forwards coach in the All Blacks' new team headed by Steve Hansen.

Cron, who retired after last year's Rugby World Cup after working with the team as a specialist coach since 2004, said on Saturday he had accepted Hansen's offer to return.

He will work alongside head coach Hansen and his assistants Ian Foster, the backs coach, and Aussie McLean, the defence coach.
