Gatland lands 2021 Lions job
Reports have suggested the New Zealander, who will leave his role with Wales following the 2019 World Cup in Japan, will complete a hat-trick of tours with the side. Gatland led the Lions to a series win in Australia back in 2013, before going on to draw a series with the All Blacks in his homeland. England head coach Eddie Jones and Ireland boss Joe Schmidt had been linked with the position but Gatland is set to continue in a role he has made his own since that success against the Wallabies six years ago. Gatland, fresh from guiding Wales to the Six Nations Grand Slam this year, is thought to have agreed to take the Lions job again and a contract is expected to be signing next week.
