Edinburgh head coach Andy Robinson and Glasgow's Sean Lineen will combine to manage the Scotland A team this season.

Scotland A will play Italy and Ireland in February before competing in June's Churchill Cup in North America.

Former England and Lions coach Robinson said: "I'm honoured to be asked and I'm really looking forward to it."

SRU chief executive, Gordon McKie said: "Andy and Sean understand international rugby and their experience and coaching acumen will be key ingredients."

Lineen, who was involved in the interim Scotland coaching set-up in 2005 before taking over at Glasgow, added: "We need to ensure we have strength in depth and I look forward to working closely with Andy to build that."

Scotland coach Frank Hadden welcomed the announcement, saying: "I'm delighted that two high profile coaches are getting together.

"The development of potential Scotland players is something we take extremely seriously.

"I cannot think of two more appropriate guys to lead the progress of this exceedingly important team."
