    Jake woos Test nations

    Cape Town - During his team's visit to England to face Saracens, Sharks director of rugby Jake White took the opportunity to remind International rugby of his availability to coach Test rugby. 

    WIN: A legendary rugby experience!

    Speaking to the BBC's website, the former Springbok coach, who led the Boks to victory at the Rugby World Cup in 2007, said he was desperate to coach at international level again.

    White left the Brumbies last year due to missing out on the Wallabies head coaching position and with the 2015 World Cup so close, he seemed to be angling for a position with a northern hemisphere team, should one become vacant after the 2014 Six Nations.

    "I've made it quite clear I would love to coach another international team. John Smith (Sharks' CEO) knows full well my ambition is to coach again at the highest level," he added.

    "I'd like to coach a team that I feel can win a World Cup. If that means that you're going to coach in the northern hemisphere, that's fantastic. If that means you get another crack at your own country that would also be great.

    "I'm never going to be embarrassed about the fact that, as a young guy, I coached national rugby and I enjoyed it. And now I've got older I long to get that opportunity again. But one never knows where. If it's in England, or Wales, then obviously I put my hand up."
