The WRU has issued the following statement tonight, which reads:
"The Welsh Rugby Union general committee regrets to have to announce that after a meeting between the Wales national coach Graham Henry and senior officers of the Union, it has been agreed by both parties that Graham will leave his position this week."
"Both sides have thought deeply about this decision and believe it has been taken with the best interests of Welsh rugby in mind."
Glanmor Griffiths, chairman of the Welsh Rugby Union general committee, said: "The WRU general committee would like to thank Graham Henry for his contribution to Welsh rugby since his appointment as our national coach in August, 1998, and would like to wish him and his family all the best in the future."
Further information will be posted shortly.
