Description:
Sean Lineen (born December 25, 1961) is a Scottish rugby player, originally from New Zealand. He has been awarded the freedom of the city of Edinburgh.

Early life

Lineen was born on December 25, 1961, in Auckland. He is the son of rugby player Terry Lineen.

Player

Lineen played at centre 29 times for Scotland, and for Boroughmuir RFC. He was a member of the notable Scottish Grand Slam team of 1990.

In the 1985/6 season he made his first journey to the UK, playing for Pontypool. In October 1988 he came to Scotland and played for Boroughmuir. He qualified for Scotland through his grandfather and made his international debut on 21 January 1989 against Wales at Murrayfield aged 27.

Coach

Following his international career, Lineen divided his time between coaching Boroughmuir – during which he was involved in both cup and league triumphs – and running the Scottish Rugby magazine. Lineen was appointed assistant coach at Glasgow Rugby (now Glasgow Warriors) for the start of the 2003–04 season and became a member of the Scotland national coaching team under Frank Hadden in the summer of 2005, coaching the backs.

On March 28, 2006 he was appointed head coach of Glasgow Warriors. He had applied to be head coach of Edinburgh Gunners but the SRU insisted that the new coach of Edinburgh must already have experience as head coach.
