Coach Gatland

I'm done - Gatland quits British and Irish Lions

The Lions almost inflicted a series defeat on the All Black after splitting the three-game matchup 1-1 with the world champions in New Zealand in July.

Gatland oversaw a memorable Second-Test victory for the Lions, who ended New Zealand's 47-game winning streak at home.

However, New Zealander Gatland was criticised in his homeland and by his own Lions players – namely flanker Sean O'Brien – leading to his exit.

Gatland eyes series win

The blockbuster series in New Zealand will be decided by a third and final game at Eden Park on Saturday after the Lions rallied to beat the world champions 24-21 in Wellington last week.

Gatland's Lions capitalised on Sonny Bill Williams' red card in the first half as Owen Farrell kicked a late penalty to level the three-match series at 1-1.

And Gatland believes the visiting Lions have what it takes to claim a series victory over the All Blacks for the first time since 1971.

Gatland says All Blacks targeting Lions halfback

Gatland said he's concerned his halfback Connor Murray was unfairly targeted during the Auckland test.

Ahead of the first test, Gatland asked the referees to look at what he claimed was the All Blacks using "blocking" tactics to protect kicking receivers.

He said he'll now be going back to the officials again in the next few days about some of the attention given to his form Irish halfback Connor Murray on Saturday night.
