As Scotland continued their Rugby World Cup preparations at Murrayfield, Scotland Women head coach, Karen Findlay, joined training to observe the tactics and programmes employed by the national coaches.
Said Findlay: "This experience has been fantastic. It's enabled me to see elite coaches at work, to share best practice and has been a great first-hand look at the planning and preparation that goes in to getting the men's squad match ready.
"I also had an invaluable hour with Andy Robinson - from a personal perspective it was a fantastic opportunity to hear his plans and his philosophy and how the coaching set-up works."
