Daryl Gibson to remain as Waratahs coach

SYDNEY (AP) — Former All Black Daryl Gibson will coach the New South Wales Waratahs in the 2019 Super Rugby season after leading the team to this year's semifinals.

Gibson has agreed a one-year contract extension with the Waratahs, who won the Australian conference and beat the Highlanders in the quarterfinals before losing last weekend's semifinal to the Lions in Johannesburg.

He will lead a changed coaching group next season as former Waratahs scrumhalf Chris Whitaker replaces Chris Malone as backs coach. Simon Cron will remain as forwards coach.
