Blackadder disagrees with Henry

7:07 pm on 22 May 2013

The Crusaders coach Todd Blackadder's dismissing the complaints of the Blues assistant coach Sir Graham Henry, over the refereeing in last weekend's clash between the two Super Rugby teams in Christchurch.

Sir Graham was annoyed over what he called pedantic officiating, claiming that the referees ignored policing blatant offences.

Blackadder's trying to move on from the former All Blacks coach's criticism of the officials - the Crusaders coach says he thinks the knight's just frustrated his side lost, and while he's also had a go at referees in the past, it doesn't achieve anything in the end.

Meanwhile SANZAR boss Greg Peters says it'll be at least another day before they decide whether Sir Graham Henry will face disciplinary action over his comments.
