White set for stint in Japan
- 20 Mar 2017
Jake White will take over as head coach of Japanese club Toyota Verblitz upon recommendation of Eddie Jones.
According to Netwerk24, Jones, who is a long-time confidant of White, encouraged Verblitz to contract the 54-year-old South African, who will conclude his tenure at Montpellier in June.
Three Verblitz representatives are rumoured to have travelled to France last week, where they met with White to finalise his appointment.
