Wales Boss Warren Gatland Calls Out England With Cheeky Dig Following Semi-Final Defeat


Wales boss Warren Gatland couldn’t resist a cheeky little dig at England following his side’s Rugby World Cup semi-final defeat to South Africa this morning.

England defeated the All Blacks in their semi-final yesterday morning with an incredible performance, setting up a final meeting between Eddie Jones’s side and the Springboks next week.

But Gatland has some doubts about his Six Nations rivals after such an inspiring semi-final. He reckons Jones’ side might have already ‘played their final.’

“We have seen in previous World Cups that teams sometimes play their final in semi-finals and don’t always turn up for a final,” Gatland said.

“So it will be interesting to see how England are next week and it could be a good game.”

A very cheeky remark from the outgoing Welsh boss. We’ll have to wait until next weekend to see if he’s right.
