Could ‘adopted Welshman’ coach All Blacks?
(CNN)Any doubts as to whether Warren Gatland is amongst rugby’s greatest ever coaches have effectively been put to bed over the past few weeks as Wales surged to a third Six Nations grand slam under the New Zealander’s guidance.
Recent victories have been hard-fought and unspectacular, built on gritty defense and tactical nous rather than individual brillaince. But as a collective, Wales has shone — a record 14th consecutive win against Ireland in Cardiff
taking Gatland’s side up to second in the world rankings.
No coach has accrued more grand slam titles than Gatland, and sandwiched within his decade coaching Wales have been two successful stints with the British and Irish Lions that culminated in a drawn series against New Zealand in 2017.
