THE CARDIFF Blues aren’t chasing the services of Graham Henry, says the club’s chairman Peter Thomas.
The Rugby World Cup-winning coach has been linked to the Welsh outfit as speculation mounts about his future.
The top coaching job at Cardiff is vacant, with Dai Young moving to English glamour club London Wasps.
However, Thomas, a good friend of Henry, has denied the Blues have approached the All Blacks mentor.
“No, not at all. There has been no discussion whatsoever for Graham Henry to come and coach the Cardiff Blues,” he told the BBC.
“I know he is coming to the UK in the near future and I'm sure he'll spend some time in Wales and if the opportunity arises, I would be delighted for him to visit and have a look at the Cardiff Blues set-up.
“But there is no thought whatsoever on Graham Henry coming to coach the Cardiff Blues.”
