Back before he was charged with taking down the All Blacks as coach of the British and Irish Lions, Warren Gatland was a key member of a Waikato side that conquered all before them - including the team he would one day take the reigns of.

On the 1993 Lions tour, Gatland's Waikato secured a memorable victory over the tourists, emerging as 38-10 winners in one of the province's greatest on field moments.

The staunch hooker even got on the scoresheet, crashing over for a try as Waikato stunned a heavily fancied Lions side.

Gatland will return to the scene of that famous win tonight, as the Lions take on the Chiefs in Hamilton.
