Robinson takes up role with Bristol

12:17 pm on 19 February 2013

The former Scotland and England coach Andy Robinson has been appointed director of rugby at second-tier English club Bristol.

Robinson, who had a disappointing spell as England coach between 2004 and 2006, resigned as Scotland coach in November after a 21-15 home humbling by Tonga extended a poor run of results.

Former England international Robinson says his first goal is to help fourth-placed Bristol back to the Premiership, where the club last played in the 2008/09 season.
