GlasgowWarriorsbIt was a challenge to keep up with the fast moving events surrounding Scottish rugby last week.

It was announced Gregor Townsend would succeed Vern Cotter as head coach of Scotland and just 24 hours later Dave Rennie was unveiled as the man who will take charge at of the Warriors at the start of next season.

Speaking in the Herald Gregor said: “It all happened very quickly. I was involved in the [Warriors] strip launch, then, one hour later, I was given the Scotland job. I had barely had time to digest that, when I was speaking to Dave Rennie about the succession at Glasgow.

“However, Glasgow will remain my No 1 priority this season. We have a huge season coming up and I want to leave a positive legacy for Dave to work with.

“I have known Dave for four or five years, over which we have kept in touch. I feel there is a great similarity in our approach to coaching, we both look for the same skills sets in players, the clubs have a similar culture in how we want to play rugby and Dave is a good fit for Glasgow.

“We will work together in player recruitment and so on, I expect he will be over here in November once the Super Rugby season is over and we will be working to make the transition as smooth as possible.

“Once it was announced I was leaving, the players opened a sweepstake as to my successor, and one of them guessed. They seem happy at the choice the SRU have made.”

Olympics Rio 2016Great Britain women will face New Zealand in the semi-finals of the Olympic rugby sevens after beating Fiji 26-7 in the last eight at Rio 2016.

GB’s Abbie Brown opened the scoring after just 15 seconds before Fiji’s Litia Naiqato finished off a stunning team move to level.

But Alice Richardson and Joanne Watmore gave Team GB a 19-7 half-time lead, and Brown sealed the win with her second.

Australia and Canada will play in the second semi-final on Monday.

Great Britain earlier beat a strong Canada side 22-0 in their final group game.

And Brown said that Sunday’s improvement came because the team had “settled” after feeling nerves on the first day.

“It is an Olympics, the nerves are going to hit,” she said.

“We have shown everyone today with Canada and Fiji, we have done ourselves justice.”
