Robinson staying on despite Scots whitewash



Scotland coach Andy Robinson is to continue in the job despite a disastrous Six Nations campaign which ended in a humiliating whitewash, it was confirmed Thursday.

The Scottish Rugby Union said in a statement that former England coach Robinson, who is under contract until the 2015 World Cup, had decided to stay on after considering his future following the Six Nations.

"(SRU chief executive) Mark Dodson and Andy Robinson met today for discussions following the RBS 6 Nations," the SRU said in a statement.

"The discussions were positive and concluded that Andy will continue to lead the Scotland national team with the support of his revised coaching structure."

Robinson had called on Scotland to shed their tags as the perennial under-acheivers of British rugby before the Six Nations, urging his team to show a more clinical streak.

Yet despite dominating England in their opening match at Murrayfield, Robinson's side slumped to defeat before losing to Wales, France and Ireland.

The nadir came in the final match of the tournament when Robinson's men were relegated to the wooden spoon following a loss to Italy in Rome.
