Edinburgh coach Andy Robinson insists he will take time to consider whether to apply for the role of Scotland coach.
Robinson has been installed as the favourite to succeed Frank Hadden after he stepped down following a disappointing RBS 6 Nations.
Robinson, the former England flanker and coach, has made steady progress during his time with Edinburgh and steered his side to a narrow win over Cardiff in the Magners League on Friday night.
He said: “There needs to be a period of reflection regarding Frank’s role, some praise for the way he has conducted himself and for the way that he has led the Scotland team for four years.
“I’m going away on holiday with my family tomorrow on holiday to Toulon to watch my son play for England under-18s.
“I will be then thinking through and talking through with my family whether I should apply for the role of Scotland head coach.
“But I will decide over the next couple of weeks as to whether or not I will apply for the role and, as and when I’ve decided that, I will inform people.”
