Robinson vows to make Scots win

Andy Robinson returned to the cauldron of Test rugby vowing to transform Scotland into a winning machine.

Robinson was unveiled as the country’s head coach yesterday afternoon, more than two and a half years since his disastrous reign as England boss came to an end.

The 45-year-old insists he is now ‘a better coach, a better leader and a better manager’ and is the right man to lift Scotland out of the doldrums.

"One of the key things for me is developing that winning mindset, not necessarily at times how we play," said Robinson, who leaves his role at Edinburgh after more than a year and a half in charge.

"It’s about winning and understanding how to win.

"My coaching philosophy, I think, will work together with the group of players, developing an understanding of how to win games.

"I believe I have the ability to do that."
