- Coach unhappy his former assistant has been overlooked
- Ken Owens named captain of squad with four uncapped players
Warren Gatland has queried the Welsh Rugby Union’s decision not to re-employ Rob Howley and says his former assistant coach deserves to be forgiven for the past misjudgements which cost him his job in 2019.
Howley was forced to step down just prior to the last Rugby World Cup after it emerged he had placed 363 bets on the outcome of rugby matches in breach of the sport’s regulations.
