Manuel Galindo, Chairman of the Department of High Performance Rugby, spoke highly of Henry’s decision to keep assisting with Argentinean rugby, saying that his influence went far beyond technical assistant to the Test team.
The Pumas best result in the 2012 edition of The Rugby Championship was a 16-16 draw at home with the Springboks, and while being competitive against the Wallabies, struggled against the eventual champions – with the All Blacks winning 21-5 in Wellington before the performance of the tournament saw the World Cup holders defeat Argentina in La Plata 54-15.
Before Argentina suits up for The Rugby Championship, they will play an England team without its British and Irish Lions representatives for two Tests on home soil, before hosting Georgia to wrap up their June Test responsibilities.
They play the Springboks away to open their account in Bloemfontein on August 17.
The All Blacks open The Rugby Championship with a blockbuster against the Wallabies in Sydney the same day.
