Warren Gatland casts doubt on his future as Wales coach

Warren Gatland has faced questions about concussion all week and he undoubtedly will do so again at Murrayfield tomorrow if Wales fall short at tighthead prop.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland has paid a glowing tribute to departing Welsh Rugby Union group chief executive Roger Lewis - but admitted it could impact on his own long-term future.

Gatland, who was signed up by Lewis eight years ago, is under contract with Wales until 2019. During that time, Wales have won three RBS 6 Nations titles, including two Grand Slams, and reached a World Cup semi-final.

Lewis announced yesterday that he will leave his post after the World Cup later this year. Gatland said: “The relationship the national team have had with Roger since I’ve been here has been outstanding.”

Asked if Lewis’ decision had any bearing on Gatland’s future, the New Zealander added: “Yeah, it probably does.”
