Afp
Thursday, December 06, 2012

LONDON - The Scottish Rugby Union (SRU) revealed on Tuesday that they are considering appointing an interim coach to take charge of the Scotland team during the Six Nations.

Andy Robinson left his role as head coach after the 21-15 loss to Tonga last month and his senior assistant, Australian Scott Johnson, is reportedly prepared to step into the breach.

"We have already received a number of applications for the job," SRU chief executive Mark Dodson told Scottish newspaper The Scotsman.

"We are reviewing these as well as looking at home and abroad for the best candidate to take Scotland forward to the Rugby World Cup.

"We have the RBS Six Nations just round the corner and, given the timescales involved, we are looking at the possibility of an interim appointment as we don't want to rush into making the decision.
