Craig Dowd will be North Harbour's new head coach next season with another former All Black Jeff Wilson his assistant.

The former prop started work as North Harbour's rugby development manager this year after seven years in London playing Wasps then coaching their forwards.

Wilson works for the International Rugby Academy New Zealand as a contract head coach.

Chief executive Brett Hollister says their appointment is exciting as Harbour rebuilds after a disappointing Air New Zealand Cup campaign.
