TOULOUSE skills coach Alan-Basson (AB) Zondagh is set to be unveiled as new member of Scotland’s coaching team, according to French media. The South African informed club bosses at the weekend that he is leaving.
The 35-year-old joined the French champions in 2019 after 12 years in Super Rugby with Natal Sharks. He guided the Toulouse academy squad to the French Espoirs title earlier this year.
Although not yet confirmed by Scottish Rugby, the move was made public on social media where players have expressed their good wishes. Arthur Bonneval said: “We’ll miss you!”, Thomas Ramos stated: “Thank you coach! Good luck my friend”, and Antoine Dupont added: “Thank you For everything”. In response, Zondagh said, “I’ll miss you. You’re formidable athletes, but above all formidable human beings!”.
