Healey in fresh attack on Henry
Austin Healey
Healey will not rush to commit to future trips
Austin Healey is set to re-ignite his bitter feud with Graham Henry when the Leicester star's Lions tour memoirs are published.

Healey has already hit the headlines for his criticism of Henry's coaching tactics during this summer's Lions tour of Australia.

Now the England international has once again hit out at New Zealand-born Henry.


The only thing that kept me going through the low times was the fact that all my family had saved up to go to Australia
Austin Healey

In the book 'Lions, Tigers & Roses', Healey reveals that he considered quitting the tour Down Under and that he is in no rush to commit himself to future trips.

"I won't make myself available to tour New Zealand in four years time unless they are better prepared with a visionary coach like Brian Ashton, Clive Woodward or Dean Richards," quotes the Daily Mail.

Of this summer's series, Healey says: "I, for one, was deadly serious about packing it in.

"The only thing that kept me going through the low times was the fact that all my family had saved up to go to Australia.

"Had they not been coming I probably would have said 'See you later', left my kit in the room, taken a few clothes to travel round Australia and gone."
