White has great deal to offer the Wallabies

2012-12-11 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Amid the constant speculation over the position of Wallabies boss Robbie Deans, 2007 South African Rugby World Cup-winning coach Jake White has declared it is a “dream” of his to one day lead Australia’s national team.

White is currently in preparation for next year’s Super Rugby campaign with the Brumbies.

Having taken a four-year hiatus from full-time coaching after the Springboks’ success in France, the two-time IRB coach of the year made it clear he still held ambitions to return to coaching at the highest level, according to The Weekend Australian.

“It was a very conscious choice I made to come and coach at the Brumbies. They have always been regarded as an organisation who pushed the boundaries and were at the forefront of innovation in world rugby,” he said.

“After I finished with the Springboks, I knew I wanted to get back into coaching, but I needed to wait for the right job, a job which would be mutually beneficial.

“As a coach, you need to be growing and learning every day, particularly if you have a desire to coach at international level, which I most certainly do. That passion has not died in me. It is the ultimate test and I believe I have a great deal to offer as an international coach.

“Obviously my focus is here with the Brumbies. I am not someone who ever looks too far ahead.

“I know how quickly things can change. But you ask would I like to coach the Wallabies?

“Of course that is a dream job. They are one of the premier rugby teams in the world and I would love the opportunity to be a part of the Wallabies set-up.”
