Henry signals RFU interest

World Cup winning coach Graham Henry has declared his interest in working for England's Rugby Football Union (RFU).

The New Zealander, 65, led the All Blacks to their second world crown on Sunday after a tough 8-7 win over France in the final.

Henry's tenure with the national side came to an end because of retirement as New Zealand broke a 24-year drought.

He said on Thursday he was open to discussions with the RFU, although he is not interested in coach Martin Johnson's job.

"Yes, I would talk to the RFU, sure. I couldn't just not do anything. I would love to help other people," Henry told the Daily Telegraph.

"I'm particularly proud about the environment we created in this All Blacks team. I would love to work in coach development, player development, environmental development, cultural development of a group of people."

"I'm passionate about that."

England were knocked out in the quarter-finals of the World Cup and the RFU are reviewing their performance, with Johnson under pressure to keep his position.

After a holiday, Henry will travel to England to coach the Barbarians for their clash against Australia in November.
