He extended his contract for one reason...

In this article about Graham's re-appointment http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/4/story.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=10481266&pnum=0 , it is "revealed" that :

"While some New Zealanders remain sceptical about the validity of these claims, All Black captain Richie McCaw revealed last week at a conference in the UK that
he would not have re-signed with the New Zealand Rugby Union this year had it not been for the conditioning programme.

McCaw said most leading players were wary of how big a toll test football was taking and that they welcomed initiatives that saw their workloads carefully managed."

If anyone has read/seen/attended/heard this conference, please let us know : marykoala@hotmail.fr

The pic of Graham is the pic of the article ; the caricature below was sent by Izzy (and so was the link to the article).

Hey mary i believe he talked abt player welfare at that IRB conference he was at recently - in woking. him and Pichot of Arg spoke abt it. the only thing i am confused about is if its true he re-signed cos of the reconditioning programme - if it is true, why did he take so long to sign when the programme was already over in march??? But thats as much as I know.
