Danny Wilson doveva diventare head coach dei Glasgow Warriors dall'inizio della prossima stagione ma lo scoppio della pandemia, che ha paralizzato il mondo e reso incerti i tempi di ritorno al rugby giocato, ha accorciato i tempi della sua investitura.

Wilson assumerà ufficialmente la guida tecnica dei Glaswegians dal lunedì 1 giugno, un mese prima di quanto previsto, liberando così Dave Rennie dai suoi impegni col club e lasciandolo libero di volare in Australia per iniziare a pensare al suo futuro coi Wallabies.

L'idea originale era quella di avere Wilson come assistant coach di Rennie nel periodo post-Sei Nazioni per fare in modo che il passaggio di consegne tra i due avvenisse in maniera graduale e il nuovo head coach e i giocatori avessero tempo per conoscersi, ma la situazione attuale ha reso impraticabile questa soluzione.

" My sincere thanks goes to Dave for providing me with an extensive handover that has allowed for this early transition," ha detto Wilson.

" Dave, his staff and players have done a great job, leading the squad to the 2018/19 Guinness PRO14 final, and leaves a solid platform to develop this squad from for the future. We're now looking forward to getting back to rugby and starting training as soon as is safe to do so."

Nathan Bombrys, Glasgow Warriors Managing Director, ha confermato che " We've agreed that this is the right time for Danny Wilson to formally begin his role as head coach of Glasgow Warriors."

"The original plan was for Danny to come in after the Guinness Six Nations and shadow Dave and his coaching team for the rest of this campaign. We appreciate Dave's willingness to be open and supportive, as this would have given Danny an excellent head start on next season.

" However, given that the 2019/20 season remains suspended for the foreseeable future, we felt that the best thing for the club would be to let Danny get started. Should we get the opportunity to conclude the 2019/20 season, we will do so under the guidance of Danny Wilson. Danny has already been hard at work planning the squad and preparing for the new season, under highly unusual circumstances, and we are all looking forward to working with him over the coming seasons."

" With sport in Australia planning to return soon, making the change now will also allow Dave to begin his new role as head coach of the Australian national team. We are grateful to Dave for everything he has done for our club over the past three seasons, and particularly for how he has been supportive of the current situation, as well as his willingness to share his vast coaching knowledge with all of our coaches.
