Australian Scott Johnson has been made Scotland interim coach for the Six Nations.

Johnson has been given the reigns after former coach Andy Robinson resigned following a poor run of form.

He is moving up from his previous role as senior assistant coach and is expected to lead the Scots through the Six Nations to avoid winning the wooden spoon as they collected in last year’s tournament, and will also be in charge of the national team for their summer tour to South Africa.
