Milestone for All Black coach

10:33 pm on 26 September 2011

A week after captain Richie McCaw played his 100th All Blacks test, Graham Henry will bring up his 100th as coach.

McCaw celebrated the milestone as the All Blacks beat France 37-17 in their Rugby World Cup clash at Eden Park in Auckland last Saturday.

Sunday's match against Canada in Wellington will be Henry's 137th international, as he has also coached Wales and the British and Irish Lions.

His first test as All Blacks coach was in 2004, replacing John Mitchell who was sacked in the wake of the 2003 World Cup result.

Since then, the 65-year-old former headmaster has coached the All Blacks to 84 test wins.
