“P***ed off” – Warren Gatland storms out of post-match interview for BBC

Welsh head coach Warren Gatland made an abrupt exit during a post-match interview with BBC Sport following a prolonged wait caused by ongoing pundit discussion.

In a riveting Six Nations clash in Cardiff, France showcased their dominance by clinching victory over a winless Wales, crossing the try line eight times.

Gael Fickou, Nolann Le Garrec, Georges-Henri Colombe, Romain Taofifenua, and Maxime Lucu were among the try-scorers for France, while Thomas Ramos contributed 20 points with his boot.

Despite tries from Rio Dyer, Tomos Williams, and Joe Roberts, Wales found themselves overpowered in the latter half of the game.

A remarkable surge from France saw them tally 25 unanswered points in the final quarter, sealing their triumph.

Gatland’s swift departure from the interview has garnered widespread attention on social media, although he later returned to fulfil his interview obligations.

One fan wrote: “Warren Gatland looks p***ed off, and rightly so. Amateur hour.”

Another said: “We all know Welsh rugby is in a tough place but this is not a good look from Gatland.”

A third added: “çFair play to him clearly the camera crew and reporter had kept him waiting and gave false promises they were ready.”

“Bottled it” – 5 players who flopped in the fourth round of the 2024 Six Nations

We examine five players who struggled to deliver during the fourth round of the 2024 Guinness Six Nations, while England, Ireland, and France secured wins.

#1. Finn Russell (Scotland)

Scotland Rugby News: “The captain didn’t really get involved as much as he would have liked to during a second half when Scotland struggled. Had a part to play in the first half and did brilliantly before the third try but more needed from him as a leader.”

Rugby Pass 5.5/10: “One of those frustrating days for the fly-half maestro, with several passes and offloads going to ground. His superb 50:22 kick created the position for Scotland’s third try but missed his first place-kick of the Championship when he nudged his conversion of Schoeman’s try wide, after 18 out of 18 up to that point. Kept trying to conjur something, but couldn’t regain control once Italy got in front.”
