The Unthinkable Could Very Well Happen In Terms Of England’s Next Head Coach

Never say never.

Warren Gatland’s last Six Nations in charge of Wales ended in triumph on Saturday, with the New Zealander winning his third Grand Slam as head coach. But could it just have been his last Six Nations game with Wales?

There have been a lot of rumours of recent weeks from some very trusted sources that England are potentially interested in Gatland replacing Eddie Jones as their head coach, and as the saying goes – “there’s no smoke without fire.

Could the unthinkable happen? Of course it could. This is sport. Bu it’s also a business. If it makes sense for both Gatland and the RFU then it’s a very distinct possibility.

Even Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones has refused to rule it out. But how would the Welsh faithful feel if Gatland joined their rivals? Jones says they would ”wish him well.”

“In professional sport, you never say never,” Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones told The Telegraph

“I am sure he will have a little bit of time off and take a break away from it and then decide what he wants to do.  If he does [move to England], we wish him well.” 

Watch this space. Gatland might not be done with the Six Nations just yet.
