Gotland relies on innovation and continuity
“We are delighted to have written such a quality staff,” Warren Gottland assures in a statement, “a truly solid group,” in which he assures mutual trust throughout his tour of South Africa. An occasion well known to Gregor Townsend for participating in the 1997 event. For Warren Gottland, the idea is to bring “new voices and a different perspective”, so the arrival of existing elements means that the coach in Scotland “knows the needs of a Lions tour of South Africa as a player and does a very good job there” of what it takes to succeed there. Neil Jenkins, who is very experienced as a Lions coach, will witness the “continuation” that Warren Gotland wants. The former opener, according to the New Zealand technician, “is fully aware of the need for such a tour” and wants to “take advantage of his experience” when challenging world champions on their land.
