The win rates of all the British & Irish Lions coaches since 1989


Sir Ian McGeechan achieved a 50% win rate during his time as the Lions coach. Warren Gatland, who led the Lions on three consecutive tours, had a 44.4% win rate from his nine official Tests in charge. 

Sir Graham Henry's win rate in official Tests was 33.3% during his time as head coach for one Lions tour. Sir Clive Woodward's reputation took a hit as the series proved to be a disaster for the Lions, with a win rate of 0%.

 As Andy Farrell steps into the role of head coach for the British & Irish Lions, he will have a rich history of coaching excellence to draw inspiration from.
