Glasgow Warriors have announced that current Bristol Bears scrum guru Alasdair Dickinson is set to join the Scottish club’s coaching staff.
Dickinson, who made 58 appearances for Scotland, will take over management of the Warriors scrum ahead of the 2021-22 season.
At just 37 years old, he already has an impressive coaching CV. Aside from Bristol, Dickinson has worked with Scotland Women, Scotland U20 and the FOSROC Scottish Rugby Academies.
"I'm really excited to join Glasgow Warriors,” he said.
"It will be great for me and my family to be back in Scotland. I feel I owe a lot to Scottish Rugby and to get an opportunity to coach at the professional level in Scotland is quite rare and something I couldn't turn down.
"I've had a great time working at Bristol. Working in a world class environment where we are challenging for Premiership and Champions Cup silverware has been a great learning experience.
"I've played with and seen the development of the likes of Zander [Fagerson] and Simon [Berghan] and I'm looking forward playing a part in continuing to develop Glasgow's front row and the club's scrum platform."
