One more time.
Warren Gatland will once again lead the British and Irish Lions in 2021 on their tour of South Africa, according to the Daily Telegraph.
The Lions board agreed at a meeting two weeks ago that the 55-year-old, who has taken charge of their last two tours to Australia and New Zealand, was its “outstanding candidate” and hopes to agree terms with the New Zealander within a month.
Gatland will step down as Wales boss following the Rugby World Cup this year and is expected to take around 6 months off before getting stuck in with the Lions in 2020 ahead of their tour.
The New Zealander won a series against Australia in 2013, before drawing the series with New Zealand back in 2017. He was also part of the coaching ticket the last time the Lions went to South Africa back in 2009.
