Warren Gatland - master tactician, visionary, psychological surgeon, reader of men, builder of sporting greatness we salute you.

How is BODs missus Amy's soap opera career coming along ?

I don't know if anyone remembers 1979 when Ireland toured Australia. Just before the first test regular out-half Tony Ward was sensationally replaced by Ollie Campbell. Even though Ireland won the series, there were amazing scenes!

got the Bod call right but got plenty others wrong during the tour

not bringing a third 10

calling up Shane Williams

picking Matt Stevens in the original squad

picking Philips for the third test

having Lydiate on the bench for the first test instead of O Brien

He was also very lucky that the wallabies goalkicker went off in the first minute of the first test

all in all a good win for the Lions but Gatland will need to make a few changes to his tactics to worry the all blacks in 4 years time

Default Gatland's revenge on Irish Rogby for sacking him

Obviously Gatland has never forgotten the way he was treated by our Irish Rogby Peers.

The Rogby mob should never have sacked him.

Revenge is sweet as he got his own back on the Irish Rogby fans.

Now he is at the pinnacle of Rogby management and can seem to do no wrong.
