Warren Gatland makes way for Rob Howley as Wales head coach for the side's summer tour of Australia.

Rob Howley has been appointed as temporary coach of the Wales national side for a three-Test summer tour of Australia due to Warren Gatland's injuries.

The decision was made by the Welsh club after Gatland fractured both heels while cleaning windows at his beach house in New Zealand last week.

The Six Nations-winning coach may return to work alongside caretaker coach Howley for Wales's last two Tests against Australia.

Gatland will be given time to recover from reconstructive surgery on his heels.
