Former All Black Andy Haden's resignation from his Rugby World Cup (RWC) ambassador role was the right outcome, Prime Minister John Key says.

Haden resigned over the weekend - after RWC Minister Murray McCully had made it clear it was incompatible for him to remain in the position - following inappropriate comments about rape.

He previously survived a sacking when he apologised for causing offence with his claim on Sky TV's Deaker on Sport programme that the Crusaders rugby franchise had race-based selection policies which restricted recruiting to only three "darkies".
