RugbyU: Townsend to replace Cotter as Scotland boss

LONDON, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 17th August, 2016) - Gregor Townsend will replace Vern Cotter as the head coach of the Scotland national side at the end of the 2016/17 season, the Scottish Rugby Union announced Wednesday. New Zealander Cotter's contract expires in June 2017 and the SRU has now made public its intention to install Townsend, a former Scotland international, into the role when his current deal as head coach of the Glasgow Warriors ends at the same time.

"Gregor's abilities as a head coach are evident and he is increasingly becoming one of the most sought-after coaches in the game," said SRU chief executive Mark Dodson in a statement.
