Kelston Boys’ High School, where former All Blacks coach Sir Graham Henry was once headmaster, is well known around local rugby circles – with Mils Muliaina the most capped All Black to graduate, while current Sevens captain DJ Forbes once studied there.
The 2010 Women’s World Cup Black Ferns coach Brian Evans is the current headmaster.
The Sanix World Rugby Youth Invitational tournament began in 2000, and is held in the Global Arena in Munakato, Fukuoka.
It is the seventh time a New Zealand High School has won the championship, with Hamilton Boys’ High School (2011 and 2010), Christchurch Boys’ High School (2006 and 2005) and Rotorua Boys’ High School (2004 and 2003) other winners.
It continues a remarkable year of rugby for the High School, winning the BNZ Condor Sevens, the Moascar Cup and the National Top Four.
