Rugby coach quizzed by readers in online Q&A

A leading rugby figure was quizzed by readers after a regional publisher organised a live web chat.

Wales rugby coach Warren Gatland took part in the Q&A session for the Wales Online website, part of Trinity Mirror’s Media Wales, and fans of the sport sent in more than 100 questions.

He was also interviewed by journalists for Wales Online’s weekly video panel programme Focus on Rugby, talking to multimedia sports reporter Jon Doel and rugby writer Simon Roberts.

The video went live on Wales Online after filming and content from the webchat and interview was published in the Western Mail.

Focus on Rugby is one of three weekly videos produced by Media Wales at its multi-media green screen studio, which also includes Focus on Football and The Arts.

The rugby programme, which normally lasts between five and 10 minutes, was launched a year ago and in recent months has attracted some high-profile guests and greater audiences.
