Cape Town - Nick Mallett, who will take charge of the World XV against the Springboks in June, has ruled out a return to coaching full-time.

Mallett, 57, was earlier this week confirmed as coach of the team to face the Springboks at Newlands on June 7.

He did, however, state that he was not interested in getting a coaching role on a full-time basis.

"I'll get involved with one-off matches like the Barbarians. I enjoy the work I do with SuperSport (as an in-studio pundit) and feel I add value there," Mallett told Die Burger's website.

"My career as a coach started when I was only 28. I've coached two international teams (South Africa and Italy) and there's not much I still need to achieve.

"My name was in the hat to coach England. Since then I've turned down various offers. There's a lot less stress in what I'm currently doing!"
