Cape Town - As media debate rumbles on surrounding the future of England head coach Stuart Lancaster, former Springbok coach Jake White has thrown his name into the hat as a replacement option. 

White, who coached the Springboks to World Cup glory in 2007, has not coached an international side since and he is currently the coach of French club Montpellier. 

"England have everything going for them in terms of resources, players and history," White was quoted as saying on The Daily Mail's website

"If they were genuinely interested and they approached me, of course I would be interested. It’s one of the biggest jobs in world sport and you’d be crazy not to consider it."

White added that he had been approached three times before about the job, but he believes that they have opted each time to keep the coach English.

England take on Uruguay on Saturday in their final game of the Rugby World Cup after their loss to Australia this past weekend saw them eliminated.
