Danny Wilson arrived at Glasgow Warriors in the summer of 2020, boasting an impressive CV from his coaching career to date.

Formerly an assistant to Gregor Townsend in the Scotland men's national setup, the Welshman is able to lay claim to eight years of elite coaching experience in the Guinness PRO14.

Wilson's first job in senior coaching came as the forwards coach at the Dragons, a role he held between 2010 and 2012 before departing for a two-year stint in the same role at cross-country rivals Scarlets.

After spending the 2014/15 season in charge of the pack at Bristol, Wilson returned across the Severn Bridge to take the reins at Cardiff Blues and enjoyed unprecedented success at the Arms Park outfit.

With his side renowned for their attacking intent, he led his team to a first-ever European title with a famous win over Gloucester in the European Challenge Cup final in Bilbao at the end of the 2017/18 campaign.

Wilson has also experienced success on the international stage; a two-year spell in charge of Wales U20 saw his side become the first Wales team to beat New Zealand at U20 level at the 2012 World Rugby U20 Championship in South Africa, before becoming first Wales U20s side to reach a Junior World Cup Final in France a year later with a squad including 2019 Rugby World Cup squad members Elliot Dee and Hallam Amos.
