Those of you who have no interest in rugby/ are huge Frank Hadden fans may wish to look away.
I'm pretty glad the SRU and Hadden decided to part ways.
Here is Hadden's record in charge of Scotland:
Played: 41 (plus match against Barbarians)
2005 Summer Tests
2005 Autumn Tests
2006 Six Nations
2006 Summer Tour
2006 Autumn Tests
2007 Six Nations
2007 RWC Warm-ups
2008 Six Nations
2008 Summer Tour
2008 Autumn Tests
2009 Six Nations
Yes, there have been near misses. A 10-0 half-time lead against South Africa squandered last year. Marginal defeats in Six Nations matches where, with a better bounce of the ball, we may have won. And he said the right things too.
After four years in charge though, more was rightfully expected from Hadden and Scotland, and he failed to deliver. The SRU got it right - it is time to allow someone else to have a go at making our - undoubtedly talented - side into winners.
The question is - who?
