Date Announced For British & Irish Lions Head Coach Reveal


The British and Irish Lions are to name their head coach for next summer’s tour to New Zealand on September 7.

Wales’ Warren Gatland is expected to retain the position he held for the series triumph over Australia in 2013 when the chosen candidate is unveiled at a press conference in Edinburgh.

Eddie Jones would have been the clear favourite had England’s head coach and his Rugby Football Union paymasters not stated categorically in the aftermath of the 3-0 whitewash of the Wallabies in June that he is unavailable.

Joe Schmidt remains an outsider contender along with outgoing Scotland head coach, Vern Cotter.
