Danny Wilson Walks Away From Wasps Job To Take Role Elsewhere

Off to Scotland.

Wasps have confirmed “with regret” that they have reached agreement with Scottish Rugby to release Danny Wilson from his coaching contract to take up a similar role within the Scotland national set-up.

Director of rugby Dai Young said:

“This is a big disappointment for us.

“In addition, the timing could not be much worse. Finding someone of Danny’s quality and experience who is available at this time of year to supplement our existing coaching team is a difficult proposition.

“Disappointing as this is, I understand that the opportunity to coach a tier one international side through to and beyond the World Cup would always be difficult to turn down as opportunities like this do not come around very often.

“I believed Danny’s experience would have been a big help to me on the training pitch. “Nonetheless, I am confident that Lee Blackett, Andy Titterrell and Ian Costello will do a good job and continue to help me move us forward.”

Wilson guided Cardiff Blues to the Challenge Cup in his final season, and will now replace Dan McFarland in the Scotland set-up. This should free him up for an early release to take up his new role as head coach of Ulster.
