SIR GRAHAM Henry will mentor Argentina’s top coaches as part of an initiative between the New Zealand and Argentina (UAR) rugby unions.
The Rugby World Cup-winning mentor will have a part-time consultancy role that will see him coach Argentina's age-grade and national coaches.
"My role will be offering the UAR's high performance team and its coaches an insight into what is required to create a national programme that will ultimately lead to a more competitive international team,” says Henry.
New Zealand Rugby Union high performance manager Don Tricker says Henry has the union's blessing
“And it's a real positive not only for him but for Argentinian rugby as well. He will be mentoring their age-grade and national coaches.
"It's in everyone's interest for Argentinian rugby to develop as they prepare to enter this year's new Rugby Championship (alongside New Zealand, Australia and South Africa). Their inclusion in the new competition is exciting for everyone and will be a historic moment in the history of Southern Hemisphere rugby."
Henry retired as All Blacks coach last year after guiding the side to RWC.« Back to Articles
