The New Zealand Herald has mocked up Warren Gatland as a cartoon clown — for the second time.
The countries national daily newspaper has previously done the same to Wallabies head coach Michael Cheika, while the Australian media has also in the past applied the same caricature to England boss Eddie Jones.
Just to clear this up, Gatland said the All Blacks went in late on Murray’s standing leg. They did. So he’s not ‘desperate’ or a clown…

Gatland slammed the All Blacks for their targeting for Lions scrum-half Conor Murray
New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen was moved to call into a radio station to respond to Gatland’s claims the All Blacks had illegally targeted scrum-half Conor Murray’s standing leg when box-kicking during the Lions’ 30-15 loss in last Saturday’s first Test at Eden Park.
And now Gatland has been caricatured by the paper for the second time in seven months, with the Herald hitting out at the tourists’ Kiwi head coach.
