As anticipated, Stuart Lancaster, coach of England stepped down from the position after his team failed to qualify for the RWC 2015 quarter finals.
The RFU will seek to hire a new coach immediately. Among the potential men mentioned are the following:
Jake White, Brumbies, Sharks, and the Boks 2007 RWC
Vern Cotter, Scotland
Eddie Jones, Japan
Rob Baxter, Exeter Chiefs
Wayne Smith, All Blacks
Warren Gatland, Wales and Wasps
Joe Schmidt, Ireland
Michael Cheika, Australia
Currently, the 52-year old White is considered the favorite, as he has expressed interest already.
For Ian Ritchie, RFU CEO, is it imperative he make this choice soon, as the English fans, still reeling over the disappointment from the RWC, demand a positive change soon.
