White pulls out of England race

Jake White has withdrawn his interest in the job of England Head Coach to stay with the University of Canberra Brumbies.
The draw of being closer to family and leading one of the world’s most promising rugby countries into a home World Cup in 2015 had proven attractive to White, who was tapped on the shoulder by a recruiting agency on behalf of the RFU.

White’s focus, and that of his team, has been on the Cheetahs all week, but without the distraction caused by constant media speculation over the last 10 days the team will have an even greater resolve to perform on Saturday afternoon.

The University of Canberra Brumbies face the Cheetahs on Saturday afternoon as part of Family Day at Canberra Stadium, with a 3.30pm kick-off.
