Roddy Grant first interview | Ulster Rugby

Roddy Grant talks to Ulster rugby about how he is settling into Belfast and working under Dan McFarland. 

31-year-old Grant joined Edinburgh this summer, taking up the role of forwards coach at Ulster.

Grant, born in Botswana to Scottish parents, played for Edinburgh more than 100 times and was capped by Scotland A but was forced into premature retirement in 2015 due to injury.

“I’m delighted that Roddy will be on board with us from this summer,” said McFarland. “Having worked with Roddy in Scotland I know his skill set will compliment mine in terms of developing our overall forward play.

“It’s also great news that Dwayne and Dan are remaining at Ulster. They have both done a great job and we’ve seen how our players, from the younger guys through to seasoned internationals, have improved as a result of their coaching.

“I’d like to thank Aaron for his work across our set-piece over the past two seasons. He has played a major role in the successful development of young players throughout our forward pack and I know that he will continue to do that in the coming months, as we aim to finish the season strongly.”
