Cape Town - English club Gloucester want Nick Mallett as their new Director of Rugby after unexpectedly sacking Nigel Davies, the Gloucester Citizen website reports.

Davies was sacked on Monday after the Cherry and Whites lost to relegated Worcester Warriors at the weekend.

While the decision shocked many, it is understood it was in the pipeline following a disappointing season, which saw the club slump to ninth in the Premiership.

A shopping list has already been drawn up with former Springbok coach Mallett reportedly at the top of the list.

Whether Mallett would be interested in the role remains to be seen though. He currently enjoys a role as pundit on SuperSport, and recently stated he has no intention to return to full-time coaching.

Mallett, 57, will also coach the World XV in a one-off game when they tackle the Springboks at Newlands on June 7.
