Speaking on BBC Sport NI’s Ulster Rugby Show, the Ulster lock feels that Gatland did not reward form. “He told me I had trained really well, played really well and unfortunately it just didn’t work out the way I wanted it to be,” he said.

“I wouldn’t be one to go nagging coaches. In my opinion, I go about my business and do what I can on the training pitch.

“I kind of feel among a lot of the staff and squad they felt similarly, but at the end of the day it’s the top dog’s decision and I wasn’t there.”
