Henry's book lights a fire - By Vaimoana Tapaleao
Sir Graham Henry's admission that he wondered whether match-fixing was to blame in the All Blacks' shock quarter-final defeat in the 2007 World Cup has fuelled an international debate about sportsmanship, fairness - and sour grapes.
In a new book out today, the coach - who won the Cup last year - lays bare his agony after the shock loss to France.
And he admits that he pressured the New Zealand Rugby Union to push for an International Rugby Board inquiry after he considered whether match-fixing might have been involved.
