Former England Rugby boss Andy Robinson today cast doubt over his desire for the Scotland job by revealing he had still to make up his mind whether to apply for the role.

Robinson is currently in charge of Edinburgh and had been expected to put his name in the hat for the job vacated by Frank Hadden almost two weeks ago.

Even though the deadline is on Monday he says that he needs more time before making the decision on whether to apply.

I’m still in the planning process of whether I apply.”, he said.

“The deadline is April 20 and I won’t be making any comment on whether I will apply or not until I have news to give you.” he told the Scotsman.

Robinson is the bookies favourite for the job recently returned from a break in France during which he said he would discuss with his family whether to apply but insisted that he would always take a full two weeks before making a decision.

“There’s still a lot for me to go through.” said the 45-year-old

“I can’t suddenly turn round here and say, ‘Yes I am applying, or no I’m not applying’.

“I don’t want to string you along. Apologies if I did that before but I don’t think I did.

“I wanted to use the full two weeks to make the decision.”

“There’s no point applying and then thinking, ‘I’ve got to do the planning for this now’.

“It should all be sorted out in your mind before you apply for the role, and that whole planning is important to me.

“I like it to be fully structured and to be written out and there’s a bit more time to go yet.”
