Ryan Watson is set to be named as Scotland's new captain after Craig Wright resigned following the team's disappointing performance in the World Cup.

"I can't see anyone other than Ryan Watson becoming captain," Roddy Smith, the chief executive, old The Scotsman. "I think Ryan will be at the forefront of the selectors' thoughts."

Watson stood in when Wright flew home after a family bereavement, leading the team against South Africa. Although Wright returned for the final match yesterday, he immediately stood down. "I felt it was the right time to give someone else an opportunity to make their mark," he explained.
