Fixing claim: Little backing for Graham Henry

2012-07-31 00:00

SYDNEY — Graham Henry is receiving little support from a former colleague in match-fixing allegations about the 2007 Rugby World Cup quarter-final.

Henry claimed in his new book released this week that referee Wayne Barnes could have been involved in fixing in the shock loss to France in Cardiff, said nzcity.co.nz.

All Blacks head coach and Henry’s assistant at that World Cup, Steve Hansen, said it was not eating away at him.

“For me it’s been gone. I am looking forward not backwards and it’s all about the future.”

Hansen said there were plenty of positives at the moment to be worrying about what happened five years ago.
