Pumas Sign Henry

Sir Graham Henry has signed with the Argentine Rugby Union (UAR) as a part-time consultant with a particular view to improve coaching at Argentina’s high performance centres. The World Cup-winning coach will help fine tune the Pumas for their Rugby Championship debut season, the UAR said. “[Henry’s] task will be to give his technical advice. He likes Argentina, the feeling of Argentine players [for the game] and he’ll help players take a leap in quality,” head of the UAR’s high performance rugby sub-committee Manuel Galindo said. Christchurch-born Henry is one of the most successful rugby coaches of all time coaching the All Blacks to 88 wins in 103 tests for a winning percentage of 85.4 per cent.
