Robinson content with Edinburgh
Edinburgh coach Andy Robsinson
Robinson says he would never rule out a coaching role with Scotland
Edinburgh coach Andy Robinson says he is happy at Edinburgh although he would never rule out a role with Scotland.

After two Six Nations defeats former Scotland forward John Beattie said the man who helped England to become World champions could improve the Scots.

"I don't deal in hypotheticals, for me it's about the here and now, but you never say never," said Robinson.

"However, my focus is fully on Edinburgh at the moment, and that's what I'm enjoying doing."

Robinson coached England's forwards to World Cup glory in 2003 and has engineered Edinburgh's rise to third in the Magners League since taking over in October.

Former British Lion Beattie told BBC Radio Scotland that national coach Frank Hadden is frustrated his side are unable to keep the ball.

He also highlighted that Robinson is widely regarded as one of the world experts in this area, and should be brought in to help.

This comments follow defeats for Frank Hadden's men at the Millennium Stadium against Wales on Saturday, and against France in the previous match.

Robinson says he understands the weight of expectation that Hadden will be feeling.

"It's very tough and certainly the seven-week period is full of pressure," the former England coach said.

"But it can also be a very enjoyable time.

"The Six Nations is an awesome tournament to be involved in.

"The next challenge will come around against Ireland, and I'm sure the squad will be looking forward to that."
