Re-appointed Wales coach Warren Gatland has urged NZ Rugby to retain the services of Scott Robertson and appoint him as the next coach of the All Blacks, before losing him.

Despite six Super Rugby titles in six years with the Crusaders, Robertson has twice missed out on the national role - once in 2019, after Sir Steve Hansen stepped down, and again this year, as Ian Foster held onto his job following a poor start to the year.

Robertson has made no secret of his desire to coach at test level and his current NZ Rugby contract contains an 'out' clause, if he misses out on the All Blacks job again after next year's World Cup.

Should NZ Rugby hesitate, Robertson has been strongly linked with England, as a successor to Eddie Jones, who has been sacked from his role after a poor 2022 results.

NZ Rugby boss Mark Robinson has acknowledged the risk of losing Robertson, as one of many Kiwi coaches to secure an overseas role.
