White not abandoning the Brumbies yet

johnboy 10 March 2012 1

The Brumbies never did publish their media release acknowledging coach Jake White was thinking about abandoning Canberra for Twickenham.

But they have managed to announce he’s decided to stay here until a firmer and more compelling offer lands on his desk.

Jake White has withdrawn his interest in the job of England Head Coach to stay with the University of Canberra Brumbies.

The draw of being closer to family and leading one of the world’s most promising rugby countries into a home World Cup in 2015 had proven attractive to White, who was tapped on the shoulder by a recruiting agency on behalf of the RFU.

White’s focus, and that of his team, has been on the Cheetahs all week, but without the distraction caused by constant media speculation over the last 10 days the team will have an even greater resolve to perform on Saturday afternoon.

Shame we had to have the unseemly spectacle of former players putting the boot into the coach before, in the end, nothing happened.

JB, does it surprise you about the former players? It’s part of the Brumbies culture that I really, really wish would go away.
