Profile

The son of former All Black Terry Lineen, Lineen is regarded as the first 'kilted Kiwi' having qualified for Scotland through his grandfather. The hard-running centre was capped 29 times by Scotland and featured in the famous side that claimed a Five Nations Grand Slam in 1990. His coaching career began with Boroughmuir, for whom he also featured as a player, and he later worked as backs coach for the national side under Frank Hadden and as head coach of Glasgow Warriors. In 2012, he announced that he would leave the Warriors to become head of player acquisition at the Scottish Rugby Union (SRU).
