Rugby: Sir Graham's influence clear within Blues - Habana


One last time against an old foe for Bryan Habana tonight.

The veteran Stormers and Springboks winger lines up against the Blues, who boast former All Blacks mentor Sir Graham Henry as an assistant coach.

Habana stared down Henry's All Blacks 15 times during his career and says he can see hallmarks of his coaching all over the Blues.

"I think a great combination of a senior group of players that are sort of the core of the team but the youngsters are relishing being a part of it. I think we've seen John and Graham Henry's little influence on the team, a little bit more stability."

Kickoff's at 7:35pm at Albany before the Rebels host the Chiefs in Melbourne.
