Wales coach Warren Gatland has expressed his concern about having no editorial control in the behind-the-scenes Netflix documentary series.

Cameras will be following teams around throughout the Six Nations for a documentary that will be aired next year.

‘The past experience with the crews we’ve had involved, whether it has been with the Lions or Wales, is their ability to create a relationship with the players and the coaching team is very important,’ Gatland said.

‘Almost like being invisible so you find yourself just carrying on with your normal routine. You build up trust with them.

‘My understanding is that we don’t have any editorial rights and that is maybe a concern.

‘You want to make sure you’re able to protect yourself because in a rugby environment, when you are talking about creating emotion, the language and the phrases used aren’t always appropriate.’

Gatland expressed the importance of building trust in previous dealings with camera crews with the British and Irish Lions
