Cape Town - Cheetahs coach Rory Duncan has been linked with a role at English club Worcester Warriors.

Former Springbok assistant coach Alan Solomons is the current director or rugby at Worcester and according to Afrikaans newspaper Rapport, he recommended that the Warriors offer the head coaching position to Duncan.

The report states that the Cheetahs are aware of the offer and that negotiations are at an advanced stage.

If an agreement is reached, Duncan could leave the Cheetahs at the end of the current PRO14 campaign.

Duncan, a former Kings and Cheetahs lock, has been involved in a coaching capacity at the Cheetahs since 2014 and was named head coach of the PRO14 side in July last year after swapping roles with Franco Smith.

Smith then became the union’s director of rugby as he also fulfils the role of Springbok assistant coach.

The Cheetahs are currently third in Conference A in the PRO14, having won eight of their 13 games.
