The unpopular All Black coach who wins by David Clarke

Here is a very interesting article from Paul Ackford of the Daily Telegraph:

Article on Graham Henry

In summary, he says that he is meticolous, with his attention to detail almost of OCD proportions. He has an incredible record of wins with Wales and the All Blacks. He lacks some soft management skills. He is not always that popular with the press or indeed some of his players.

What has struck me about Graham Henry has been his ability to learn from his mistakes, try something new and keep his distance from the players. He said his time with Wales and the Lions taught him much about the international game.

Do you measure his legacy on the style of rugby, the consistency of winning or the fact that his team lost two games of rugby, one against Australia and one against France?
