Tributes are pouring in from around the world for the All Black legend Sir Colin Meads, who died on Sunday aged 81 after a battle with pancreatic cancer.

The man known as 'Pinetree' enjoyed a 15-year playing career and is widely regarded as the greatest All Black forward of all time.

He made his All Blacks debut aged 20 in the 1957 tour of Australia and was named as New Zealand's best rugby player of the 20th century.

Sir Colin spoke to Kathryn Ryan on Nine to Noon back in 2010.
