Glasgow Warriors have announced the appointment of former Scotland international Peter Horne as the new skills coach ahead of the 2022/23 season.

Horne spent most of his career with the Warriors having made his debut for them in 2009 and had racked up 182 appearances making him fourth in the list of most games played for the club after Chris Fusaro, Ryan Wilson and Rob Harley.

He was part of the Glasgow squad that clinched the Pro12 title in 2015 and had represented Scotland 45 times including appearances in the 2015 and 2019 Rugby World Cups.

Having announced his retirement from playing career in December 2021, the 32-year-old initially joined the Bulls as an assistant coach for the 2021 FOSROC Super6 before taking over as club’s Head Coach ahead of the 2022 Sprint Series.

“I’m delighted to be back at Scotstoun,” Horne told

“As soon as I’d stepped away from playing, I had the goal of getting back into the pro game as a coach as soon as I felt ready.

"When this opportunity came up, it was a no-brainer. I’m so invested in this club and the city that it was an easy decision.

"I want to help this club back to where it belongs and back challenging at the top of the table".
