Dean Ryan has confirmed that he will leave his position as Scotland forwards coach following Saturday's Six Nations clash with France.

The former England international joined caretaker coach Scott Johnson's support staff at the start of the year.

"I've always been here only for the Six Nations," Ryan told Sky Sports News. "I'm contracted to Sky and I'll be working there next week. That has never changed and never was going to.

"It's been fantastic. We have got some wins, which always makes life easier. It's been fun."

Scotland have won two and lost two of their four matches in this year's tournament.
