Gatland: I'm not interested in England job


Wales coach Warren Gatland has ruled himself out of the running to replace outgoing England boss Stuart Lancaster.

The New Zealander has been mentioned among the frontrunners to take on the task of lifting England from the disappointment of crashing out at the pool stage of their own Rugby World Cup.

Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) chairman Gareth Davies insisted on Friday that Gatland would honour his contract, which runs until 2019.

And, speaking to WalesOnline, Gatland revealed: "I'm not interested in the England job."

Gatland has coached Wales since 2007, guiding the team to three Six Nations titles, including two Grand Slams.

Montpellier coach Jake White is the current favourite to replace Lancaster, who resigned on Wednesday.
