Dodson pays tribute to departing Rennie

​Scottish Rugby would like to record its thanks and best wishes to Dave Rennie after he confirmed he will leave his role as Glasgow Warriors Head Coach at the end of the current season, to take up the Head Coach position with Australia.

Rennie, who joined Warriors in 2017 from Super Rugby side the Chiefs, guided the side to the Guinness PRO14 Final at Celtic Park and the quarter-final of the Heineken Champions Cup last season.

The club came top of its Guinness PRO14 conference in both the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons as his attacking, all-court style of play maintained the Warriors’ position as one of the top teams in the competition.

Glasgow Warriors continued to develop exciting young talent during his first two seasons with many going on to secure international honours with Scotland, demonstrated with the selection of 19 players in Gregor Townsend’s Rugby World Cup training squad this summer.

Scottish Rugby Chief Executive, Mark Dodson, said: “I’d like to thank Dave for the contribution he’s made to the development of Glasgow Warriors over the past two seasons.

“He’s led a talented playing and coaching group with passion and encouraged the team to express themselves and play positive rugby throughout. Scottish Rugby Chief Executive, Mark Dodson

“He enhanced the strong, positive culture at Scotstoun and pushed the team to achieve significant results, playing some outstanding rugby on the way.

“He has conducted himself throughout with great professionalism and I know he will want to sign off his time in Glasgow with some silverware. We wish him well for the future.”
