Hayman to play for Pau

Nz Herald
Wednesday, February 07, 2018

A decade after his exit from the All Blacks, Carl Hayman is about to resume ties with New Zealand rugby by putting his big frame to work at the Brisbane Global Tens next month.

The 38-year-old, considered the world's best tighthead prop in his day, is in the early stages of his coaching career in France, working under fellow former All Black Simon Mannix as Pau's forwards coach.

Hayman completed his coaching papers at Toulon and retired from professional rugby in 2015, taking a year off to travel and refresh. Overseeing Pau's forward pack since, he still finds time to lace up the boots and slot in at lock - yes, lock - for a federal 3 team, New Zealand's equivalent of club rugby, just for the love of the game.

"I've enjoyed it. It's been good to go back to the grassroots where it all started," Hayman tells the Herald on Sunday. "Whether it's France or New Zealand, rugby clubs are similar world-wide. Often in the professional scene you lose sight of that so it has been quite refreshing and good to strap the boots on again.
