Rugby Union – Lions coach to be announced on September 7

Rugby Union - Lions coach to be announced on September 7– The British and Irish Lions coach will be announced on September 7, the team’s management revealed on Monday, with New Zealander Warren Gatland expected to continue in the role. Wales head coach Gatland, 52, led the Lions to glory in Australia three years ago — their first overseas success since 1997 — and British media have tipped him to remain in place for next year’s tour of New Zealand. Australian Eddie Jones, who led England to a Six Nations Grand Slam and a series win in Australia this year, ruled himself out of the running in June, saying he was “completely unavailable”.
