Former Italy manager Franco Smith arrives in Glasgow

Franco Smith returns to the benches. The former Squadra Azzurra coach between 2020 and 2021 will coach the Glasgow Warriors next season.

Capped 9 times for the Springboks during his playing career in the late 1990s, the Scottish club’s new coach returns to the field after a brief hiatus as head of high performance for the Italian national team.

He remains on a more than mixed record with Italy, having won no match in the VI Nations tournament in two years. This time he will be at the helm of a team evolving in ” the United Rugby Championship » bringing together the Irish, Italian, Scottish and South African teams.
