Henry has no concerns about Weepu

The All Blacks coach Graham Henry says he has no concerns that one of his leading players from last year, the halfback Piri Weppu, isn't getting regular game time in his preferred position.

For the second week, Weepu has been named on the Hurricanes bench, having played most of the Super 14 season at first-five-eighth.

However Henry doesn't see that as a problem. He says Weepu came on and played exceptionally well for the Hurricanes, as he did when he played for the All Blacks last year.

Graham Henry also says he'd like to continue in the position for a while yet and will seek an extension to his contract through until the 2011 World Cup.
