Auckland – Former All Black wing Jeff Wilson has been appointed skills coach for the Blues and will join head coach Pat Lam and assistant Bryce Woodward for the 2012 Super Rugby season.

Speaking to the NZ Herald website, Wilson expressed his delight at the prospect of joining the Blues upcoming Super Rugby campaign.

"Coaching the development team with Nick White has included input from Pat and Bryce. Now to take that up another level by working closely with them and the players is a challenge I'm really looking forward to," Wilson said.

Wilson is an assistant coach for North Harbour and coaches the Blues development team.

Lam revealed that Wilsons success at lower levels of the game and his outstanding work-ethic had contributed to his elevation to Super Rugby.

"We wanted someone to co-ordinate our skills programme. Jeff is a perfect fit for us. His reputation for high standards and values as a player and now a skills coach is superb, and he will fit well into our environment. He's from within our franchise and considering his role with the Blues' Development side, this is a natural progression for him," said head coach Lam.
