Cape Town - Former Springbok coach Jake White has again signalled interest in the England head coaching position.

Stuart Lancaster on Wednesday stepped down as England coach after a torrid Rugby World Cup which saw the hosts knocked out of the tournament at the pool stages after defeats to Wales and Australia.

Bookmakers have made White favourite to replace Lancaster and when asked whether he would be interested, the South African told Sky Sports:

"If they genuinely think a foreign coach is the right way forward and it is genuine they think it is me, it would be naive of me to say I was not interested."

White, who coached the Springboks to the 2007 World Cup title, is currently in charge of French Top 14 side Montpellier.
