The Scottish Rugby Union has confirmed Andy Robinson has decided to stay on as Scotland’s head coach, despite collecting the wooden spoon in the Six Nations.
The former England coach is under contract until the 2015 World Cup, which Scotland are 66/1 to win with bookmaker. However, he was left to ponder whether he should continue after a poor Six Nations campaign, but after discussions with the RFU has decided to continue in his role.
“(SRU chief executive) Mark Dodson and Andy Robinson met today (Thursday) for discussions following the RBS 6 Nations,” read a statement from the SRU.
“The discussions were positive and concluded that Andy will continue to lead the Scotland national team with the support of his revised coaching structure.”
Robinson will now begin preparations for Scotland’s summer tour of Australia, Samoa and Fiji and has shaken up his backroom staff. Scott Johnson has come in as senior assistant coach while Matt Taylor has taken up the role of defence coach, with Gregor Townsend and Graham Steadman leaving the set-up.
