Crusaders coach Scott Robertson keeps his eye on the ball during a backyard cricket match to mark the naming of the Kiwi Super Rugby sides.

Scott Robertson might have won the most Super Rugby titles among aspiring All Black coaches, but his cricket skills need some work.

Crusaders head coach Robertson tried his hand at cricket in Auckland on Wednesday at a media opportunity to mark the unveiling of the Kiwi Super Rugby squads for 2020.

Also in attendance were Blues head coach Leon MacDonald, Highlanders head coach Aaron Mauger, and Hurricanes and Chiefs assistants Jason Holland and Neil Barnes.

The coaches switched from rugby to backyard cricket mode with Robertson, a keen surfer, finding the going tough. They all donned Super Rugby themed hawaiian summer shirts for the day with the competition beginning in late January – the earliest it has kicked off.
