The Rugby Site would like to congratulate Gregor Townsend on having won the RaboDirect Pro12 ‘Coach of the Year’ award at a ceremony on Sunday night.
Townsend, who took charge of the Glasgow Warriors at the beginning of this season has lead his side to the semi-final of the Pro 12. He has got his side playing a brand of attacking rugby that has seen him recognised as the league’s top coach this year. The Warriors take on Joe Schmidt’s Leinster side this weekend in what promises to an attacking match.
In an interview with BBC radio Scotland ahead of the semi-final clash, Townsend said, “The way we have played at times has blown us coaches away. It all comes down to the effort and fight the players have for each other.”
Congratulations to Gregor Townsend once again and we look forward to seeing two of The Rugby Site’s contributors go head-to-head in the RaboDirect Pro12 semi-final.
