Montpellier - Jake White has extended his contract as "consultant" with Montpellier by two years through until June 2017, the Top 14 club have announced on Wednesday.

White, who coached the Springboks to World Cup glory in 2007, arrived at Montpellier in December to take over from Fabien Galthie.

The club, which currently sit in eighth spot and will miss out on making the top six play-offs for the first time since 2010/11, decided to announce the deal to put an end to rumours that White was one of the eight candidates shortlisted to succeed Philippe Saint-Andre as France head coach.

White, 52, will have compatriot Shaun Sowerby (forwards) and Australian Scott Wisemantel (backs) as his assistants next season.
