Fresh from guiding the All Blacks to their first World Cup title in 24 years, Graham Henry will coach the Barbarians in their November 26 match against Australia at Twickenham, organisers announced.

Henry, who earned redemption in the eyes of his compatriots after his side avenged a 2007 World Cup quarter-final defeat by France in Sunday's final, will have a star-studded cast at his disposal against the Wallabies.

His World Cup-winning side is represented by Sonny Bill Williams, Keven Mealamu and Piri Weepu, along with two of the Springboks' 2007 World Cup-winning stars, Bryan Habana and Victor Matfield.

Two-time World Cup winners Australia were beaten by the All Blacks in the World Cup semi-finals.
