Joe Schmidt linked to 2013 Lions coaching role

Leinster head coach Joe Schmidt has been linked with a role in Warren Gatland’s coaching set up for the British & Irish Lions tour to Australia next summer.

Schmidt is viewed as one of the most impressive c0aches in Europe having taken Leinster to back to back Heineken Cups since taking over as head coach in 2010.

With Warren Gatland set to be announced as head coach of the Lions on September 4th, he is busily putting together his back room team and Schmidt is said to be high on Gatland’s wish list.

Gatland is also looking to take his attacking and defence coaches from Wales Rob Howley and Shaun Edwards, whilst England scrum coach Graham Rowntree is likely to join the party.
