New Zealander Warren
Gatland has extended his contract
as head coach of Wales until after
the 2019 World Cup, the Welsh
Rugby Union (WRU) announced
e 50-year-old former Ireland
and Wasps coach took up the post
in 2007, since leading Wales to
Six Nations grand slams in 2008
and 2012, as well as the semi-
finals at the 2011 World Cup.
Wales also triumphed at this
year s Six Nations under interim
coach Rob Howley, while Gatland
took charge of the British and
"I am proud and delighted to
have been chosen by the Welsh
Rugby Union to take charge of
Wales teams for the next two
Rugby World Cup tournaments,"
Gatland said in a statement.
"I have chosen to stay in Wales
because of my confidence in the
players we have, the coaching
structures we have developed and
the succession plan of talent we
now constantly update."
Gatland also oversaw the Lions
successful tour earlier this year,
which was their first series win in
Australia for 16 years.
He was named United
Kingdom coach of the year at the
2013 UK Coaching Awards and,
yesterday, won coach of the year
at the prestigious BBC sports
personality of the year awards.
"I know the other major rugby
nations take us seriously as
opponents who can play excellent
rugby and that inspires me to take
this group of players even further,"
" ere is an incredible amount
of hard work ahead but, with
the backing of the Welsh Rugby
Union, the national squad now
has the means to deliver what the
Welsh public want.
"I want to personally thank
the WRU and the Welsh rugby
public for the fantastic support
the national squad enjoys and I
aim to return the compliment
by devoting all my professional
energy to the success of our
national team in the years ahead."
WRU chief executive Roger
Lewis praised Gatland for
introducing a new degree of
professionalism to the Welsh set-
"I am pleased and honoured to
be able to announce that Warren
Gatland will remain head coach
of Wales until after the Rugby
World Cup in 2019.
"He has undoubtedly proved
that he has the rugby expertise,
the passion and the commitment
to prepare and inspire our teams
to play with the utmost skill and
pride for the jersey."
Gatland, whose contract with
Wales had been due to expire
after the 2015 World Cup, has
expressed an interest in coaching
the Lions for a second time when
they tour his native New Zealand
in 2017. For that to happen, the
WRU would have to grant him a
sabbatical, as it did for the tour of
Australia this year. --- AFP
