About Graham Henry

Richie McCaw on Graham Henry:
He is never happy where we are at. He always has somewhere to go, always looking to make improvements. He has watched a huge amount of rugby and is not afraid to trial ideas from other teams. That’s his huge strength. He sees the big picture, plans a whole campaign. He is motivated by a huge desire to see the All Blacks win every test and the World Cup.
