It was Warren Gatland's predecessor as a New Zealander head coach of Wales, Graham Henry, who became nicknamed the "Great Redeemer", thanks mainly to some cute marketing at a time in the late 1990s when a series of dire results was followed by a long winning run. The difference from Henry in Gatland's style of management was that on Friday night, after Wales's revitalising win over France in Cardiff, the incumbent boss preferred to vest the description in his players, not himself.
