His coaching career began with Auckland Grammar School before moving on to Kelston Boys' High School but he made his name with Auckland and the Blues before deciding to take the Wales job following indifference to his talents from All Black chiefs. Henry led Wales to 11 consecutive victories and was nicknamed 'the great redeemer' by fans, eventually taking charge of the 2001 British & Irish Lions in a series defeat to Australia.
He left his post with Wales after a record 54-10 defeat to Ireland in 2002 and returned to New Zealand with the Blues before taking the All Black reins in 2004.
The Lions drew the first Test and narrowly lost the remaining three before winning a two Test leg in Australia 2-0.
