John Plumtree’s departure to the All Blacks is set to be confirmed on Thursday.

The Hurricanes will hold a media conference at 1pm at their Rugby League Park base, with Plumtree’s departure expected to be announced.

Last year’s beaten semifinalists are expected to replace Plumtree from within their ranks, although the coach has remained involved in training over the last week since Ian Foster was announced as new All Blacks coach.
