Gatland Open To The Idea Of Becoming England Head Coach

Gatland Open To The Idea Of Becoming England Head Coach

Warren Gatland was yesterday's guest on The Good, The Bad & The Rugby podcast - hosted by James Haskell, Alex Payne and Mike Tindall - where he discussed his current coaching situation and future plans.

Gatland is currently head coach of Super Rugby side the Chiefs, but with his contract running up next year, the former Lions, Wales, and Ireland coach's next move will again be one of great interest.

“My contract is up in New Zealand next year and I’m not actively looking for something, but if the right thing comes along I’ll have a look at something,” Gatland said.

“It could be back in the Premiership, it could be in France, there’s opportunities in Japan as well. I could be waiting until after the World Cup and maybe it’s international rugby again.

I’m not actively looking but something will come along and it will be the right thing and at the right time.

Should England fail to meet expectations at next year's World Cup, one suspects that Eddie Jone's days with the side will be numbered. Should this come to pass, names such as Scott Robertson and Ronan O'Gara will be speculatively bandied about, but Warren Gatland has not ruled himself out should the opportunity arise.

“It’s a long way down the road. They wouldn’t let me back into Wales if I went and took on the enemy,” Gatland stated.

“I loved my time there in Wales, but you never say never about anything and like I said we’ll see what happens over the next few months.”

As is the case after most World Cups, there is a lot of change in the makeup of international coaching set-ups, and with a plethora of coaching talent on the market, expect there to be some eye-catching acquisitions.
