Bruno Stolorz (born 6 February 1955)[1] is a former coach of the German national rugby union team.[2]

He shared his duties as coach of Germany with Rudolf Finsterer until the later resignation on 20 March 2010.[3] Stolorz was seconded to the German team by the Fédération française de rugby to improve Germany's performance in the sport and is also a coach with French club team RC Orléans, where he fulfills the position of a Conseiller sportif auprès.[4][5] He took up his position with the German team in early 2008.[6]

After the end of Germany's 2008-10 European Nation Cup campaign and Finsterers resignation the later stated that Stolorz would be the ideal candidate to coach Germany by himself.[3] However, Stolorz was replaced with Torsten Schippe in July 2010,[7] with South African Jakobus Potgieter as Schippes assistant.[8]
