Simon Cron

1st Jan 1970 1.81m/kg Coach

One of the most promising coaching talents of Australia, Cron is a former flanker for Canterbury and comes from a family of rich rugby pedigree and is the nephew of All Blacks scrum coach Mike and cousin of Hurricanes assistant Dan.

After moving to Australia in 2006, Cron led Northern Suburbs from 11th to their first Shute Shield title in 41 years just a year later.

One year later he was given the Australian under-20s coaching job and his rapid ascension throughout the coaching ranks continued after joining Gibson’s Waratahs as their forwards coach in 2018.

In 2019, he left Australia to coach Top League side, Toyota Verblitz.
