I just come back to thinking that there is no way the next Wales coach should actually be Welsh. Needs to be SH, regardless of procedure, preferably a Kiwi.

There are no Welsh candidates good enough, Dai Young being the only one, but what has he won? I agree he needs to be a Kiwi, we need to go for the best. Looks like the WRU are cool on Pivac, according to some sources, a shame as he has been here a few years and knows the scene, still we will know soon enough, to be announced this summer.
Gatland has brought a lot, especially professionalism and attention to detail, and a great fitness regime, but I'm so tired of the negative, conservative, play it safe tactics, and by his stooges Howler and Mcbride, who IMO he made a big mistake in keeping instead of replacing them.

Yes agree on Gatland. He professionalised Wales and that has been important in making us competitive again. Sometimes it is easy to forget the hammerings between 1988 and 2003. However, yes, the whole set - up has become staid and stale. A decade is an awfully long time to coach a national side.

Reports suggest the WRU favour Rennie, a choice I would be comfortable with.

Yeah I'd be happy enough with Rennie, he's a proven winner, and his sides play good attacking rugby.

Looking at it from another side, what do people think the future holds for Gatland post Wales?

Well, the impression I get is that there is no appetite for him in NZ

You actually raise an interesting point. This is something not much talked about on here, certainly not by Welsh posters.

Gatland will be alright, won't need to work again if he doesn't want to, nice position to be in at his age. He'll probably pick up a nice job offer in England somewhere.

Nobody rates him in NZ and they mocked him severely.

Then he brought the Lions over.

I think of him as BAD or BaD or The BAD or The BaD. Nice acronym. B@D is like B@Q. Only saying like, and I'm sure he won't mind. Seeing as he's Big and Dull with attitude and hates himself. :D. I bet he had a slate at school.
