The British and Irish Lions will name their head coach for 2021 tour of South Africa on Wednesday with New Zealander Warren Gatland widely expected to be given the honour for the third time.
Rugby.com.au reports Gatland led the Lions to a series victory over Australia in 2013 and a drawn series against New Zealand in 2017.
He was also an assistant in 2009.
Gatland, who led Wales to the Six Nations title this year, will stand down as the country's coach after the Rugby World Cup in Japan, having won three Grand Slams during his spell as the longest‑serving coach in their history, having taken over in 2007.
