South African Leading Charge To Knock Lancaster From Hot Seat
Despite having only been in charge of the Brumbies for a couple of months, Jake White has suggested that he would like to be given the opportunity to speak to the RFU about the vacant England coache's job. William Hill make him the 5/2 third favourite to get the job behind joint 6/4 favourites, Nick Mallet and Stuart Lancaster. It would appear that one of those three will be given the job, with fourth favourite John Kirwan offered at 16/1.
"The odds suggest that Lancaster and Mallet are slight favourites, but the South African, White, will be hoping to have a say in the final decision," said Hill's spokesman Joe Crilly.
Next Permanent England head coach: 6/4 Stuart Lancaster; 6/4 Nick Mallet; 5/2 Jake White; 16/1 John Kirwan; 33/1 Eddie Sullivan; 40/1 Toby Booth; 50/1 BAR
