Gray heads back to Scotland

Date published: September 6 2016

Scotland Head Coach Vern Cotter has confirmed defensive contact consultant Richie Gray will return to his back room staff for the 2016 November Tests and 2017 Six Nations.

Gray was part of last season’s 6 Nations and Summer Test preparations following a three-season spell as South Africa’s specialist breakdown coach, culminating in their bronze medal finish at last year's Rugby World Cup, as well as the SA Sevens side.

Gray has again been given a specific defensive brief and will work alongside defence coach Matt Taylor in the build-up to the two competitive campaigns.
