Super Series Head Coach Stevie Scott has left his position to take a role at Bath Rugby.

Watsonians Rugby is disappointed to announce that Stevie Scott has left his position of Head Coach.

Despite a short spell with the team, Scott brought passion and intensity to the team and helped the club to a new level.

The former Scotland, Edinburgh, and Romania coach will take up an Assistant role at Gallagher Premiership Side Bath Rugby.

While Watsonians are disappointed by the news, the club are happy Stevie has progressed to such a big club and will continue to search for the highest calibre of coaches to bring the club back to the top of the Super Series table.

On his time with Watsonians Stevie Scott said "I'm incredibly thankful for the opportunity to lead Watsonians for the last six months. It's a hugely forward-thinking club with a fantastic group of players and coaches, and I'm so grateful to have been a part of it.

It was ultimately a tough Sprint Series to end this season, but I'm confident that the club will bounce back on the pitch and will be in a strong position to retain their Super Series title next season.

I'd like to thank the board, coaches, and wider playing group for my change here at Watsonians - the club will always be special to me."

Discussing his move the coach said "I am delighted at the opportunity to work with such a proud and established club in the Premiership - I'm really looking forward to the challenge.

Leaving Watsonians wasn't an easy decision for me, but ultimately the opportunity to work in one of the best leagues in the world was a really attractive prospect, and I can't wait to get stuck in with the team."

Director of Rugby Chris Hunter said on Scott's departure, "Stevie brought some great experience and professionalism with him to the club. I know the players and coaches will remember the intensity and attitude that Scott instilled in them and it will serve us all well.

We want to say a big thank you and wish Stevie all the best in his next adventure."

Scott took up the role with Watsonians earlier this year and will start his role with Bath Rugby immediately.

Watonaians Rugby are working hard to recruit a new head coach in time for the new Super Series season due to start next month.
