But consider this:
- given that the NZRU re-employed Henry after the 2007 RWC debacle, they were hardly going to sack him now, were they?
- since the departure of Robbie Deans, who else is there, really?
- despite predictions that the All Blacks' could finish bottom of the Tri-Nations this year and given their distinctly dodgy form of late, this might actually be viewed in a positive light in the long term. No danger of them peaking between World Cups this time!
