'To coach in France is a dream of mine' - Scott Robertson could leave NZ after Crusaders job

Crusaders coach Scott Robertson has admitted he could leave New Zealand to coach in France, should the opportunity present itself.

Having risen through the ranks with the likes of Canterbury and New Zealand's Baby Blacks under-20s side, 44-year old Robertson is currently preparing for the upcoming Super Rugby season with the Crusaders, having coached the Christchurch based side to the past two titles, eyeing a third.

Naturally, Robertson's success at domestic level has seen his name thrown into the mix for the soon-to-be-vacant All Blacks job, contending with the likes of Steve Hansen's assistant coach Ian Foster.

Speaking to Newshub, though, Robertson has come out saying that he could also look to head offshore after his tenure with the Crusaders.

"I've got some stuff I want to finish off with the Crusaders first, but I would also love to coach overseas, to go to another environment, and test yourself and your philosophy - that would be a really great challenge," Robertson says.

"To coach in France is a dream of mine. I played there for a reason - so I could learn the language and learn the culture and the way they do things."

Robertson will for now continue with the Crusaders, though, preparing for a hat-trick of Super Rugby crowns when their season begins on February 16 against the Blues at Eden Park.
