The All Blacks have lifted their ban on Getty Images after the photo agency apologised for the disruption caused by a photograph of their tactics taken prior to last weekend's Bledisloe Cup victory over Australia in Melbourne.
New Zealand-born photographer Scott Barbour, a freelancer for Getty Images, shot a picture of head coach Graham Henry holding the team's tactical moves at a Melbourne training session last Wednesday, with the agency subsequently banned from sending a replacement snapper to the week's remaining sessions.
Getty Images and All Blacks management met in Christchurch to discuss the concerns regarding the image, with the agency acknowledging the sensitive nature of the information before apologising.
All Blacks manager Darren Shand said the All Blacks had accepted the apology from Getty Images and looked forward to again working with the organisation.
