Is it time to lay off Graham Henry?


The pressure valve eased on Graham Henry’s All Black coaching career on Saturday night as his side put two consecutive losses behind them to produce their biggest win over Australia in 12 years.

The All Blacks showed just how ruthless they can be when their minds are one the job, outscoring the Wallabies four tries to one and completely outplaying them in every facet of the game.

Henry has faced an enormous amount of criticism since the All Blacks’ disastrous World Cup campaign, which only intensified after last week’s dreadful display in Sydney.

But after Saturday night’s big win, is it time to lay off Henry and give him time to develop his “young” side or did he just get lucky in meeting a Wallabies side hungover from their success in Sydney?
