Wales head coach Warren Gatland was honoured last night with a special award at the prestigious Rugby Expo Awards at Twickenham.
Gatland picked up the award of 'Outstanding Contribution' to rugby in a year which saw him guide the British & Irish Lions to a memorable Test series victory over Australia.
