The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
Sir Ian McGeechan is also among a list of potential candidates but Irvine believes Robinson – a member of two Lions tours – would be the perfect candidate.
“Andy is doing a great job with Scotland and he ticks so many boxes from being an internationalist and Lions tourist as a player first,” said Irvine.
“Then to coaching England, the Lions and now Scotland so he has to be a very strong candidate to get the job.
“Ian said after the last tour that he wouldn’t be interested in coaching but he said that after three other tours as well, we have very much got to go with an open mind on him.”
