Define 'conditions imposed' given that every coach in the world is appointed by their unions, with certain conditions, no coach in the world openly opposes his contractual obligations, if he wants to keep his job. Gatland has, to my knowledge never openly criticised his bosses. No boss being paid the sort of money an international coach gets is that much of an idiot.

By definition, top coaches have got to the top, amongst other reasons by being compliant and complicit when they need to be.

I missed him and Sean 'Stat Pad' Holley. Definitely a flawed poll.

I bet he would like nothing more than the wru to pay out his contract.

In anticipation of this he is going to be a good employee and support everything the twits say, so they can't use disloyalty as a cause to fire him.

I'd be surprised if Gatland would be disloyal anyway. If there is one thing Gatland seems to do, it is loyalty. He has as far as I know, never criticised the WRU, his staff anyld very rarely has he criticised his players

We all know it won't be Rob Howley! According to the Western Fail, he wasn't very nice to Leigh Byrne at all! In fact, he was very rude to Leigh! :D :D


(Meaning, in the madhouse that is the current WRU leadership, they won't risk any naughty boys, plus, they've scoured the world and have already found 3 'names' - Probably, from Treorchy, Pontypridd and Llwynhendy!!)

I am surprised Geraint Lewis has not been promoted up the levels from the under 18s , thought he made a huge difference at Ponty , played far better than when the chief was there, is he in the running at all.
