Jake White has made his intentions clear that he wants to take the Springboks to the 2011 World Cup to be played in New Zealand. White wants to get the core management team together that went to the World Cup in 2007, including Eddie Jones and team doctor Derick Coetzee.
Jake was quoted in a Sunday newspaper as saying that he was sick of watching the poor performances by the Springboks and is ready to do a hospital job, if the union wants him. He has already made contact with Eddie Jones and Derick Coetzee, who are both on board.
Jake White has already spoken to Oregan Hoskins, who has not yet commented publicly. Hoskins’ reply to White was that the idea needed to be approved by an executive council.
Current coach Peter de Villiers will go through the normal performance review that follows any international tour or tournament. This review will cover the bad results from the past few months where the Boks lost 5 from their 6 games, as well as the recent comments he made in the media.
More on this as information becomes available.Tweet
