JIM HUGHES AND WARREN GATLAND

Big news in the last week or so has been the appointment of Wales’ Kiwi coach Warren Gatland as the coach of the 2013 tour to Australia by the British and Irish Lions. I was discussing the former All Blacks hooker as the Lion’s coach with a friend; local businessman Jim Hughes earlier today. Jim is a huge Wales and Scarborough rugby fan who hails from the principality. He travelled to New Zealand last year for the world cup with his wife and his blog for the trip was featured in (what was at the time) The Scarborough Evening News. Jim told me today that Gatland attended his 60th birthday party in Hamilton and emailed me a snap of the future Lions coach at his Party. He is obviously a man of influence!!
