    Wow, brilliant news for South Africa. I mean seriously, that's the best South Africa could ever hope for. If PdV doesn't win the RWC, I think Jake White stands a good chance of coaching, providing the SARU doesn't act like an idiot (not always a given).

    rep's aside, Jake White should get a rep if he's on this forum!!!

    I would really like to see him coach the Boks again, at least then I can actually enjoy the thrill of SA almost winning or winning against the All Blacks...

    Was hoping that JW would coach Wales after the RWC ... but going back to SA to bring the next generation on would be an awesome one.

    Great news, but pity the agony of SA rugby will continue until next year.

    What's Jake White doing these days? Is he still coaching/on the backroom staff of any Super14/Currie team? Or just taken a few years off from rugby?

    Pity that SARU will never let JW coach again, we all know this...

    Hopefully they get Coetzee (Stormer's coach) for the job though, I don't see them hiring (for ....'s sake don't call me racist, it's reality) a white coach.

    EDIT: Olyy he is coaching a few uni teams and doing advisory work for a few overseas clubs (I think it was Toulon and Saracens)

    Jake seems to have altered his story about his 'sacking/re-applying' since last year. Maybe an attempt to butter up SARU.
    I all events I think that if/should the Boks don't win next year, Allistair Coetzee would be the best bet of becoming coach. Im sure SARU will want to continue with a black/coloured coach, otherwise this excercise with PdV would be pointless

    Jake wouldn't touch that with a barge pole!

    PDV has spent the last two years setting the Boks up to fail. Why would anyone want to jump onto the bridge of a sinking ship.
