McFarland to leave Scotland set-up mid-January

Scotland Assistant Coach Dan McFarland will leave the national team set-up mid-January to take on a Head Coach opportunity.

McFarland, who joined the Scotland coaching team from Glasgow Warriors in 2017, will remain in post for a nine-month notice period as the recruitment process for his replacement gets underway.

Former Scotland back-row and current Worcester Warriors Head Coach, Carl Hogg, has been added to the national team coaching set-up on an interim basis.

He will share forwards-coaching duties with McFarland on the 2018 Summer Tour to Canada, USA and Argentina.
