London Welsh assistant coach and former Scotland international Gordon Ross has agreed to join Championship side Worcester Warriors's coaching staff.

Ross, 37, earned 25 caps for Scotland in a playing career that included spells with Edinburgh and Saracens.

The former fly-half was named Welsh assistant coach in 2013, but only ended his playing career this season.

"I am delighted to be offered the chance to join Worcester's coaching staff," he told the club's website.external-link

"I am very impressed with the infrastructure and also the ambition of the club.

"The club have a fantastic playing squad and I am very much looking forward to working and supporting players with the goal of seeing them progress to the first team."

Ross, who was part of Scotland's World Cup squad in 2003, will join former Leeds team-mate Carl Hogg's staff at the end of the season.

"Gordon has illustrated a fantastic desire to become a successful coach and his season as assistant coach at London Welsh will stand him in good stead," said Worcester director of rugby Dean Ryan.

"Gordon enjoyed a fine playing career, during which he was an outstanding professional, so we are delighted he will join us as a coach this summer."

Worcester are currently second in the Championship, three points behind leaders Bristol.
