LONDON - World Cup-winning South Africa's coach Jake White has held talks with England rugby chiefs, his agent told The (London) Sunday Times.
White guided South Africa to a 15-6 victory over England in the World Cup final at the Stade de France in Paris on October 20 and announced on Wednesday that he would quit his post in December, accusing Springbok bosses of bouncing him out of the job.
"They (England) have been in touch," White's agent Craig Livingstone told the paper. "England are busy with the (post-World Cup) review process and then they will make a decision.
"We have expressed an interest (in the England job) and so have they. We've been talking to Rob Andrew (Rugby Football Union director of elite rugby)."
The RFU have yet to decide if they want to keep coach Brian Ashton, though they remain publicly supportive of him.
After arriving back in South Africa with the Webb Ellis Trophy, White said: "England is probably one job most international coaches wouldn't mind taking because it's a power that can become a huge force. They have a great rugby culture."
England have never hired a foreign head coach. - Sapa-AFP
