Jake's ambitious, no one can deny that

Jake White.
Jake White.
White knew the fallout he would create by leaving the Brumbies, especially since he was many times on record swearing he would work his contract out. He then did a complete about turn, as soon as he knew he wasn't the next Oz coach, to accept the job at the Sharks. Here he envisaged that the positives would far outweigh the negative sentiment that would follow, where he would not only do very well for himself financially, but where he imagined he would gain the necessary exposure, to be able to secure another international coaching post, which he did not keep secret was his ultimate desire. If nothing extra-ordinary about White, he is ambitious to the core. Leaving a union as high profile as the Sharks so quickly after joining to become a backroom boy in backwater Tonga, does not exactly constitute a meteoric opportunity to reach ones dreams. One can arrive at one conclusion only as to his departure, therefore.
