Gregor Townsend won 82 caps for Scotland and appeared in 2 Lions tests during an international playing career which lasted 10 years. He became famous in 1995 for a last minute reverse pass to Gavin Hastings, dubbed “The Toonie Flip” that enabled Scotland to win in Paris for the first time in 25 years. A great student of the game, Gregor played club rugby in Scotland, Australia, South Africa, England and France. Gregor has been Scotland’s attack coach since 2010 and part of the team that planned the campaign in Argentina that year, the first time Scotland had won a major test series in the Southern Hemisphere.
