WATCH: Hawick rugby club appoint new head coach

Hawick Rugby Club have announced that Darren Cunningham will be their new Head Coach.

Cunningham has been in charge of Jedforest and Kelso in recent times, but replacing Nikki Walker at Hawick could be his biggest challenge yet.

Hawick's future in the Premiership league is uncertain, as they finished second from bottom this season.

They have to beat Edinburgh Accies in a play-off match on 29 April at Lasswade, to survive in the top flight of Scottish Club Rugby.

Cunningham told ITV Border of his pride at being given the Hawick job, and said he wants to make them a "dominant force" once again.
