What They Said

NZ Rugby World - - The 2017 British & Irish Lions Tour Of New Zealand - Li­ons coach Warren Gat­land

“So much was made about de­valu­ing the jer­sey and those things so we made a de­ci­sion to try to get through game with as many in the start­ing fif­teen as we could. Pos­si­bly, you may have been a lit­tle bit more pos­i­tive about bring­ing those play­ers on fresh, but so much was made of that. I un­der­stand peo­ple’s views... we made a col­lec­tive de­ci­sion that we’d make them in­jury re­place­ments or as HIA [Head In­jury As­sess­ment] re­place­ments.” –
