Stormy waters: Warren Gatland has ruffled feathers with quotes about picking English players for the Lions tourBy Alan DymockIF EVER there was a media brouhaha that your regular Australian rugby fan would want from the British Isles at this time of the year, then Warren Gatland’s purported ‘Anglo-gate’ fits the bill perfectly.In an interview with the Evening Standard yesterday Gatland was quoted as saying of the English. “If they do well in the Six Nations, there will be a reasonable contingent of English players, but that brings a certain element of – how do I say it? – other pressures that come with selecting a lot of English players.”After this little gem, the British and Irish Lions head coach qualified it by suggesting that with a larger English contingent would come more attention from the media on either side of the continent and that squad members from England would attract more attention than most.Winners: England look likely to have a large Lions contingentWhat is clear, is that any Lions squad, regardless of national makeup, would be targeted in Australia. Gatland was simply stating it as he saw it. It was a line from an wide-ranging interview and one that is interesting, regardless of context. However, just because it’s obvious, it’s possibly not something worth suggesting in February.Of course, Gatland is not the type to sit back when a media firestorm erupts, especially not for something he feels has been misrepresented for, especially after suggesting there will be “a reasonable contingent”.Today he told the Daily Telegraph that anyone saying this Standard interview implied he intended not to pick too many Englishmen for fear of an Aussie backlash was talking, “absolute bull****””. Leaving no stone unturned, Gatland reiterated a point he had made months before about squad balance, saying. “I would happily pick 15 English players in the first Test at Brisbane if I thought they were the best 15 players for the job. The only consideration for a Lions coach is to get the best 15 on the park to do the job. That’s paramount, I’m not remotely bothered which country they come from.”It is also worth noting that Gatland has already stated that he also wants representation from every single home nation.Scrum: Martin Johnson was heavily scrutinised at RWC 2011Of course, Gatland is used to throwing out a few barbs, it’s almost expected part of the Six Nations circus and music to the ears of the rugby public, rendered motionless by banal, meaningless quotes and for journalists behind the mics, but a furore like this must be causing furtive looks from the considerable Lions PR machine whose job it is to keep track of every howitzer fired by their figurehead.The Grand Slam winning coach is a fighter and the kind of man you want lighting fires under players backsides before a test. Nevertheless, when he takes that on before a squad is even selected, it means that he is likely to ruffle feathers in the coming months. Today he is at England’s training camp in Burton-upon-Trent and I’m sure, privately, at least, he’ll be dowsing the fears of Stuart Lancaster’s in-form squad.

(Photo by David Rogers/Getty Images) LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS I’ve no doubt he will pick a squad fit brimming with regional dialects from all four countries to go into battle for six weeks Down Under. He should not, however, be left on his own to fight battles and only a recording device away from a media furore. That will not help the British and Irish Lions. He is already being scrutinised for every nuance of every sentence and come April, when his squad is picked. He will be in for another, more strenuous round of media boxing as his selections are pored-over.Hide him away and let the mystique of the Lions do the talking until they land Down Under, then let battle commence.
Get to know the prop who stole the show at this year’s U20 World Cup and has been named in the France squad for the 2018 autumn Internationals – Demba Bamba LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Brive and France U20 prop Demba Bamba Date of Birth 17 March 1998 Born Paris Club Brive Country France Position Tighthead propYou grew up in Saint-Denis, a Paris suburb known more for football than rugby… I discovered rugby at school when I was 14 and played in a small regional tournament. Someone from the Saint-Denis club saw me and invited me over.Have you always played prop? No, I was No 8 in my first year. At 15 I switched to prop, but I still like running with the ball.You were a national judo champion at 14. Has that sport helped your rugby?Yes. Both require great upper-body strength and good technique to bring down your opponent. I also played a lot of handball, which has helped my rugby.How hard was it to move from Paris to a country town like Brive? I was only 16, so it took time. Everything’s different but I adapted and I love it here now.You’ve signed for Lyon and will join them next season. Why Lyon? It’s a very professional club. Their facilities are excellent and I think it’s a club that is excellent at developing young players. Prop star: Demba Bamba celebrates during France’s win over New Zealand at the U20 World Cup (Getty Images) This article originally appeared in the November 2018 edition of Rugby World.Follow Rugby World on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. How do you relax? I love listening to music and going on my PlayStation, and I play a lot of other sport, particularly football. I support Marseille.Your performances in France’s U20 World Cup win made headlines… It’s not something I’ve been used to, so it was a surprise, but a nice one. It’s made me more motivated because it’s nice to see those sort of headlines.What’s your main ambition for this season? To have a big season for Brive in the ProD2. I’m now too old for France U20, so it’s going to require a lot of work to make the next step into the senior squad. But I’m patient and it’s a question of working little by little towards that goal.And the 2023 World Cup in France? Yes, that’s a dream. Not just because it’s in France but the final will be at the Stade de France. I grew up about five minutes from the stadium so it’s really home for me.RW VERDICT: Bamba stands 6ft 1in, weighs 18st 7lb and runs like a back-row. A regular in Brive’s pack, the 20-year-old is now learning his scrummaging craft in the ProD2. Once he’s honed his technique, he’s going to be one the world’s most feared prop forwards.
