Warren Gatland Reveals His Coaching Ambitions After He Leaves Wales In 2019
Super Rugby ambitions.
Warren Gatland has admitted he hopes to secure a job in Super Rugby when he leaves his position as Wales boss following the 2019 Rugby World Cup.
Gatland’s plan is to take a break following the tournament and return to New Zealand. His goal then is to secure a Super Rugby job in his native country in time for the 2020 season.
“The plan is to finish in 2019, and have a six-month break.” Gatland told Auckland-based Radio Sport
“I’m coming back home, going to the beach and putting my feet up for a while. Then see if there are any opportunities after that, perhaps in Super Rugby.
“The thing about New Zealand is you have to be in the right place at the right time because there’s not a lot of coaching positions.”
Gatland also admitted he hopes to one day coach the All Blacks.
“If you come back to New Zealand and if there’s an opportunity to get involved in Super Rugby, and you’re successful, other things open up for you,” he added.
“That’s the way I look at it. I promise you there’s not a strategy in place of me coming back to New Zealand and wanting to coach the All Blacks.”
