Head coach Gregor Townsend is “honoured and privileged” to sign a two-year contract extension that will see him lead Scotland at the 2023 World Cup.
Having taken charge in 2017, Townsend’s six-year tenure will make him Scotland’s longest-serving head coach of the professional era.
The 82-cap former international has won 22 of his 40 Tests at the helm.
Townsend says Scotland’s “progress on and off the field” in the past year gives him “real grounds for optimism”.
Having left his role as Glasgow Warriors head coach to take the Scotland job, Townsend steered the national time to their highest world ranking of fifth in his debut season.
Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup for the first time in 35 years in 2019, but later that year crashed out of the World Cup at the pool stage for only the second time.
