Team selection is a private matter

LIAM Cooke (Write Back, November 6) needs to get real.

Warren Gatland doesn't need to justify his team selection to anyone other than the players.

And that will have been done away from the media glare and will ensure continued trust from any players he coaches.

He may also, when he retires, write his memoirs. Then Liam will get the answers he craves for, warts and all. Just ask Roy Keane.
