Warren Gatland has been named as the greatest ever rugby coach, beating off the likes of Ian McGeechan, Jim Telfer, Graham Henry and Rassie Erasmus following an extensive vote by Rugby World magazine.
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the popular publication and to celebrate they polled their readers to determine who is the best coach the games has seen over the last six decades.
Gatland boasts an impressive CV, having won three Premiership titles with Wasps and Heineken Cup, three Six Nations Grand Slams with Wales, as well as Test wins against Australia and New Zealand with the British and Irish Lions.
He took over as the Chiefs head coach at the beginning of the year and will be in charge when Super Rugby Aotearoa debuts this weekend.
Gatland will also lead the Lions next three for a historic third-time in-a-row as they take on world champions the Springboks.
What do you think of the result? Is Gatland the greatest ever rugby coach or do you think someone else deserves that accolade?
