Robinson to stay as coach despite poor Scottish run


ANDY ROBINSON has decided to continue as Scotland head coach despite the Six Nations whitewash, the Scottish Rugby Union has confirmed.

Scotland finished the Six Nations with the wooden spoon, leaving Robinson to consider his future despite being under contract until the 2015 Rugby World Cup.

“ Andy will continue to lead the Scotland national team with the support of his revised coaching structure,” noted a statement from the union.

Robinson entered a period of introspection after a Six Nations campaign which ended with a 13-6 loss to Italy in Rome on March 17th. The defeat was Scotland’s 12th in 15 Six Nations matches under Robinson.

It was also Scotland’s seventh successive defeat – the worst sequence of results since 1998 – following the failure to advance from the World Cup group stages for the first time in New Zealand.
