The Hurricanes' New Zealand coach John Plumtree admits he wants to coach the All Blacks when his spell with the Super Rugby franchise comes to an end.

Plumtree's only international experience came as forwards coach under Joe Schmidt with Ireland team before moving back to the southern hemisphere to become assistant coach with the Canes.

With current Canes coach Chris Boyd leaving to take up the director of rugby role at Northampton Saints, , where he will take on the lead role next season.

"Absolutely, but timing's everything and I don't know what's going to happen after the World Cup in terms of All Blacks and All Blacks coaches and that," Plumtree told RadioLive.

"I'm busy with the Hurricanes now for the next three years after his year, so whatever happens after that happens. I'm not scared to pack a bag and go overseas -- it doesn't really worry me -- so wait and see."

Plumtree will not be only kiwi with his hat in the ring when Steve Hansen eventually leaves the role, with Schmidt, Warren Gatland, former All Black Tana Umaga and All Blacks assistant Ian Foster also likely to be in the running.
