Shortlist for Jake's successor

2007-10-29 17:56

Johannesburg - The panel to appoint the national coach has met in Johannesburg to discuss the process and to finalise the shortlist for the position of Springbok coach.

Saru has confirmed that Jake White did not apply for the position and he was therefore not considered. SA Rugby recently met with White to discuss the matter, and can confirm that White advised SA Rugby that he does not want to make a decision on his coaching future at this point in time.

The panel has therefore compiled a shortlist of four candidates and their names will not be released until they have been informed.

White, who coached the Boks to the Rugby World Cup title after beating England 15-6 in the final in Paris, is contracted until the end of the year, although it is not yet known if he will take the SA team on their end-of-year tour to play Wales (November 24) and the Barbarians (December 1).
