The 52-year-old Kiwi, in London with Graham Henry to prepare the Barbarians for their match against Australia at Twickenham on Saturday, wishes to see a strong England side for the good of the sport but feels the current set-up are being undermined by their governing body, on a day when a highly damaging report was leaked to the media.
