Looks like there’s still some confusion here, I meant Gatland is OUT looking for a cabinet large enough to hold that awkwardly sized Super Rugby trophy

Listen going and training the chiefs was easy rugby. What he needed to do was go to one of the Aussie teams and try and be Billy big balls then

So Gatland couldn’t be outdone by Philip Schofield so had to match him. Typical Gatland.

But, he's come home to slow down and retire. Good Waikato man.

They win super rugby with Gatland
. They give the job to Enzedder while he is off with the Lions and Enzedder helps them to last place. Then Gatland comes back and wins it again.

No way, man. Gats on the AB coaching ticket from 2022. In any capacity, maybe not head coach

Doesn't need to cross the ditch to do that. How about sorting out our own home grown perennial losers the Blues? Never been much of a Gats fan but if he could get them performing he'd be the messiah. Graham Henry is the only coach that has ever had any modicum of success with the once mighty Blues.

Gatland makes the most of his teams. You don't see the Chiefs playing "Gatland ball", for instance.

That's not their style.

If the All Blacks are struggling with their relatively junior coaching panel, I can see him getting the call up in 2022.

Yes, seeing the start the Chiefs have made to this season I'm starting to become a Gats believer.

Real heads were celebrating his move as soon as it was announced. He’s an excellent coach, and well suited to the less stressful demands of club rugby (and still the only coach to get Waikato a title in the pro era, which helps).

But Gatland hasn’t always had the best auditions for his dream job over the years, and kiwis don’t forget that. He was particularly tetchy and flustered during the Lions tour, calling into question his temperament for the ABs head coach role which has pressures unlike any other in the entire country.

However I suspect most have come around to him post-Lions tour, when he’s managed to rebuild Wales (again) and prove that the reductive, one-dimensional Warrenball accusation is bollocks and he’s actually a highly adaptable if pragmatic coach.

Still, if he’s behind at half time next week? Gatland OUT :nod:

I don't recall too much opprobrium directed at Gatland.

Sure, he was called a bellend by a few Kiwis when he got a bit sensitive on the Lions tour.

Very few would have criticised his coaching skills. It's obvious he took Wales to great new heights.

Gatland out! He's making the Brumbies look like a team that can score from methods other than lineout mauls.

He's already take a shite international team and take them to success with Wales. He's nothing to prove taking the 3rd bes kiwi team upwards.

Another home loss and couldn't even beat the Hurricanes who lost to the lowly Blues the week before. Gatland's shortcomings as a coach, so long masked over by the mediocrity of the Six Nations, are being cruelly exposed in the white hot furnace of Super Rugby.

And he brought that NH whinge about the ref shtick after the game as well.

The emperor has no clothes.

Hilarious that his negative, defensive side had just kicked them to a miserable 6 Nations style lead with a drop goal then his own son snatched it back off them with a drop goal. :lol:
