Six Nations boss linked with British & Irish Lions role

After being linked with a role, Scotland boss Gregor Townsend said it would be a “huge privilege and honour” to be part of the British and Irish Lions coaching staff.

The Scot, who turned down the chance to head to New Zealand in 2017, has once again been linked with joining Warren Gatland in South Africa next summer.

“I’m not sure if I’ll get asked this time after saying no last time, but it was different circumstances then, with it being my first opportunity to coach Scotland.”

Townsend added, whatever his role, that he hopes the series goes ahead as normal. .

“I think everybody in rugby will be excited about the Lions this time next year – let’s hope we’ve had a full season of international rugby and everything is back to normal so we can have a good Lions series,” he said.
