While I’m not convinced it’s the right idea, it looks like John O’Neils christmas present has come early as the ABs have reappointed Ming the Merciless:
GRAHAM Henry was reappointed All Blacks coach today, the New Zealand Rugby Union said, despite overseeing the team’s worst ever World Cup performance this year.
Henry, 61, coached the All Blacks to 42 wins and just six losses after first being appointed four years ago and the union’s acting chairman Mike Eagle said Henry was the best of four candidates interviewed by the board.
“Graham’s record, both on and off the field, is among the best in All Blacks rugby history,” Eagle said. “He has given a lot in a successful period for our game and the Board is convinced he has more to give the All Blacks and New Zealand rugby.
“As a result, we believe that in the best interests of New Zealand rugby, Graham and his team were the right choice.”
So John’s neck might just feel a lot better a lot quicker, or does this story have another twist in it yet?
