Ross lands assistant role at Welsh

Former Scotland international fly-half Gordon Ross will embark on a coaching career after being appointed as assistant at relegated Aviva Premiership club London Welsh.

Ross, 35, who will still be available to play for the Exiles, will take charge of the backs as part of a new backroom staff under Justin Burnell, who has succeeded Lyn Jones as head coach.

Ross, who has scored 574 points in 106 appearances since joining the Exiles from Saracens in 2009, said: "I've worked under some very good coaches over the years and hopefully I can use some of things I've picked up from them with the London Welsh squad next season."

He added: "It was disappointing last year to get relegated but this is a new challenge.

"There are a lot of new faces at the club but I'm looking forward to working closely with Justin to get the squad gelling together as quickly as possible so we're ready for the start of the Championship season."
