Gatland Questions England’s Resolve To Win The ‘Big Games’ Following Welsh Win

When it matters.

Wales head coach Warren Gatland has been around a long time and we all know by now he has absolutely no issue with speaking his mind.

The New Zealander questioned Kyle Sinckler’s mentality heading into the game with England (and was proved right when the prop was hauled off in the second-half) and felt after the game that Eddie Jones’ men didn’t really create anything to bother them.

And now Gatland has questioned England’s resolve in terms of winning when it “really matters.”

“England were outstanding in the first two games.” Gatland said in his post-match press conference.

“I look back on England in the last few years. When it’s really mattered, I’ve questioned whether they can win these big games.”

“We’ve had a record of being pretty good in them. We’re in a good position because you guys were all talking England up, saying there was going to be 15 points in it. We knew exactly where we were, and I said to the players they (England) had no idea what animal was turning up this week, but we did.”

“It was probably one of the best weeks that I’ve had with the team. I’ve been involved with a lot of teams, and yesterday’s captain’s run was as good as I’ve ever seen.”

Does Gatland have a point or is he just rubbing salt in England’s wounds?
