Gatland 'needs to resign'
SPOTLIGHT: More pressure has been heaped on British and Irish Lions coach Warren Gatland after his Chiefs side slumped to a record-breaking eighth defeat in a row in Super Rugby Aotearoa.
The Crusaders handed the luckless Chiefs a 32 – 19 loss at home, which included an awarded try for the Christchurch based side despite what looked like a clear knock-on.
Another ropey decision won’t have saved Gatland’s blushes. It is the most losses in the franchises’ history.
Some of Chiefs fans are even calling for his resignation, while fans in the UK and Ireland will undoubtedly be watching on nervously a year out from the Lions tour of South Africa.
Gatland needs to have some respect and resign

Warren Gatland has turned the Chiefs into the Blues of old in one season. 🤣

@ReHAPPY90 Warren Gatland reminds me of David Moyes

Huge difference in body language between the 2 head coaches. Robertson sits with his assistants, clearly living every pass and tackle on the field. Gatland stands at the back of the box, arms folded, watching his assistants like a grumpy teacher. #CHIvCRU #SuperRugbyAotearoa
