No Pretty, But Pretty Effective . . . JPR Williams Backs Winner Warren Gatland To Turn Wales Around

Warren Gatland has been backed to make a success of his second stint in charge of Wales – but it won’t be pretty, according to the man who ground out more victories than most.

In the dying minutes of Tuesday night’s window, Swansea's attempt to secure a loan for the West Brom forward fell through.
