Dan Carter’s ‘all-access’ documentary will make its world premiere on August 29.

Sir Graham Henry, Conrad Smith and Damian McKenzie will be part of Spark and TVNZ’s coverage of the Rugby World Cup as the telco throws the kitchen sink at the event in its bid to transform the sports broadcasting landscape in New Zealand.

Spark and TVNZ revealed their lineup for the tournament in Japan on Friday morning and, as expected, Sky recruit Scotty Stevenson will be the voice of the tournament.

Sir Graham Henry will bring his critical eye and vast knowledge to Spark/TVNZ's coverage.

Sir Graham Henry will bring his critical eye and vast knowledge to Spark/TVNZ’s coverage.

Stevenson will be joined in the commentary box by All Blacks cult hero Stephen Donald to guide Kiwis through the ups and downs of the All Blacks’ campaign and they will be surrounded by a team of heavy hitters providing analysis.

As well as Henry, Smith and McKenzie, All Blacks legend Keven Mealamu and the well-respected former All Black Tamati Ellison will add their opinions from the sidelines alongside TVNZ’s Kimberlee Downs.

Gemmell will be joined in studio by Isa Nacewa, Black Ferns world champion Kristina Sue and former All Black Jon Preston, who will provide analysis via what Spark/TVNZ promises will be a “state-of-the-art augmented reality analysis tool”.
