Henry rules out RFU move

GRAHAM Henry has slammed the door shut on a coaching role with England -- and ruled out any possible reunion with the Lions for their 2013 tour of Australia.

New Zealand's World Cup-winning coach wants to keep his hand in the sport but he is looking for an advisory role with a Heineken Cup team and does not see himself involved in Test rugby again.

The English Rugby Football Union are in the process of working our its succession plan following Martin Johnson's decision to stand down as England manager.

Henry said: "I am contracted to the New Zealand Rugby Union until the end of March. I have no desire to coach a team. I have done 140 Tests and that is enough. I have been very privileged. "It is time to move on (from Test rugby)."
