Former All Blacks coach Steve Hansen and wife Natasha have pocketed $2.7 million after selling their five-bedroom Wanaka property.

The home was sold for $990,000 over CV, the Wanaka Sun reported – and while it’s a win for Hansen, it’s not the one he would have wanted this month.

Meanwhile, last week, agents for Hansen’s Canterbury lifestyle property were still negotiating with potential buyers after it was passed at auction.

Since his departure following the All Blacks semifinal loss to England in the Rugby World Cup, the search for Hansen’s replacement has begun.

On Wednesday, New Zealand Rugby chairperson Brett Impey revealed a whopping 26 Kiwi coaches had been invited to apply for the top job.

Elsewhere, Ray White Wanaka agent Rachel Walsh sold Hansen’s Wanaka property and told the Wanaka Sun the buyers were Kiwis living overseas.
