Super Rugby Pacific expansion franchise Moana Pasifika have added two new coaches to its management staff just over a month out from the kick-off of the new competition.
Together, the pair join head coach Aaron Mauger and assistant coach Filo Tiatia on the Moana Pasifika coaching team.
MacLeod joins the franchise as a defence coach after having served as Southland assistant coach in 2018 and 2019, and then as head coach between 2020 and 2021.
Under his guidance, the Stags snapped a three-year losing streak in 2019 before improving drastically during his time as head coach.
That was reflected by their three NPC victories in 2020, followed by a semi-final appearance in last year’s Championship division.
