Henry sorry for refs outburst
Wellington - Rugby World Cup-winning coach Sir Graham Henry has apologised
for criticising referees after a recent Super Rugby match, saying his comments "went too far."
The former All Blacks coach issued a public apology on Tuesday at the instruction of Super Rugby's governing body SANZAR which ruled his comments breached its code of conduct. At a judicial hearing on Sunday, Henry - now an assistant coach for the Auckland-based Blues - was cautioned and instructed to publicly apologise to referee Glen Jackson and his assistants.
Henry said his comments, in which he called the television match official blind and labeled one decision ludicrous, "went beyond that which SANZAR deem acceptable."
