​Danny Wilson joined the national team as Assistant Coach (forwards) in August 2018.

He arrived with eight-years’ elite-level coaching experience in the Guinness PRO14, after a successful three-year spell as Cardiff Blues Head Coach, which followed two years with Dragons (2010 to 2012) and two years at Scarlets (2012-2014).

He combined both roles with an impressive spell as Head Coach of Wales U20, a side he steered to a third and second-place finish in the 2012 and 2013 Junior World Championships.

He then had a season with Bristol under former Scotland Head Coach Andy Robinson before joining Cardiff Blues as Head Coach (2015-2018), steering the club to European Challenge Cup glory in Bilbao and securing a return to the Heineken Champions Cup for the forthcoming season.
