New Zealand's rugby World
Cup-winning coach Graham Henry ruled himself out of the running
on Monday to replace departed Martin Johnson at England.
"It's not a reality," the 65-year-old, who had been tipped
as a 3/1 joint favourite by bookmakers after Johnson quit last

"Over the next six months I will come to some conclusions,"
Henry resigned from the All Blacks this month after eight
years in charge but remains under contract to the New Zealand
Rugby Union (NZRU) until March and has been touted for a
mentoring role with them.
Northampton director of rugby Jim Mallinder was the other
joint favourite, tipped by insiders for the job after coaching
England's second-string Saxons between 2006 and 2007 and winning
15 of his 16 matches.
