Henry not buying into Springboks second string notion

1:33 pm on 16 July 2011

The All Blacks coach Graham Henry's refusing to buy into the debate surrounding the Springboks' decision to leave 21 apparently injured frontline players out of their Tri-Nations squad for upcoming Tests in New Zealand and Australia.

The South African coach Peter De Villiers says it's simply a sensible decision in the wake of an extended Super Rugby competition.

Aware no doubt of how any comment against the move may look given the All Blacks rotation policy of the last World Cup, Henry he's not getting caught up in what the opposition are up to.
