Former All Blacks coach Henry charged

WELLINGTON, New Zealand 23 May – Former All Blacks coach Graham Henry was slapped with a misconduct charge on Thursday after blasting officials during the Auckland Blues’ loss to the Canterbury Crusaders last weekend.

Henry, the Blues defensive coach, singled out television match official Keith Brown.

“Frank Halai (scored) a try in the corner — it would have been nice (if) you had those given to you,” Henry, filling in for Blues coach John Kirwan, told reporters.

“It was obvious to me. He is probably a blind TMO (television match official), is he?”

SANZAR on Thursday said it had brought a complaint against Henry, who stepped down as All Blacks coach after winning the 2011 World Cup, for breaching its code of conduct with the hearing to be held on Sunday.

Henry failed to meet the press after the Blues training Thursday, leaving Kirwan to tell TVNZ: “Sorry to disappoint you guys.

“But we let him out and he had a bit of a dig, so we’ve just put him back again and settled him down a wee bit.”
