Bok stance no worry for Henry
Auckland - All Blacks coach Graham Henry is not concerned over the Springboks' decision to send a weakened side
to New Zealand and Australia during the Tri-Nations.
According to the allblacks.com website
, South Africa had decided injuries suffered by 21 of their leading players required rest and players of the quality of locks Victor Matfield and Bakkies Botha and flanks Juan Smith and Schalk Burger were not included.
Henry said: "My thoughts on that (South Africa's policy) are immaterial. My thoughts have to be on what is best for our guys. I respect what they (South Africa) have to do and that is their strategy for this particular rugby year.
"We have to have our own strategy that we put into practice and make sure we have got a lot of communication about that," he said.
