- with New Zealand hosting the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the pressure on Henry will now be relentless;
- I suspect that the New Zealand Media will not give Henry an easy ride over the next few months, let alone the next few years; and
- I can't imagine that the NZRU will allow Henry quite the freedom he has enjoyed in the past
It's also worth mentioning that, after presiding over an unsuccessful Lions tour to Australia in 2001 Henry buckled under the pressure of the Wales job - it will be interesting to see how he'll cope with the additional scrutiny that his failings this year will bring. One thing I do hope is that his 2007 experiences will mean that Henry won't be quite so sanctimonious in his preachings to the rugby world at large.
