    Warren Gatland makes Wales return after Wayne Pivac sacking to rule out England role

    Warren Gatland has made a sensational return as Wales head coach after the dismissal of Wayne Pivac, ruling out the prospect of joining England. Pivac’s sacking was announced by the Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) on Monday following a review into a disastrous Autumn Nations Series campaign, with Gatland immediately returning to the role he previously held between 2008 and 2019, less than a year out from the 2023 World Cup in France. Gatland had been linked as a possible contender to take on the England coaching job in the event that the Rugby Football Union (RFU) decide to dispense with the services of Eddie Jones this week following their own review into a disappointing autumn and worst calendar year of results since 2008.
