SANZAR still reviewing Henry outburst

7:07 pm on 22 May 2013

It will be at least another day until SANZAR makes a decision on whether Sir Graham Henry will face disciplinary action for his outburst against Super Rugby referees on Tuesday.

The competition's governing body were considering what action to take against the former All Blacks coach after comments he made following the Blues' loss to the Crusaders.

He labelled the television match official Keith Brown "blind" for disallowing a Frank Halai try and criticised referee Glen Jackson for sin-binning the Blues lock Culum Retallick.

The Blues assistant coach believes referees are becoming too pedantic in their interpretations rather than policing blatant offences.

However, the SANZAR Game Manager Lyndon Bray says the officials were correct with both the key decisions.

SANZAR are still deciding what action to take and expect to make a decision within the next two days.

Bray admitted there were some issues at the scrum, where Henry says the Crusaders prop Wyatt Crockett "got away with murder".
