Reports in Australia suggested that England were hot on the heels of one of Rugby’s top coaches to replace Stuart Lancaster after a disappointing World Cup and subsequent sacking.
The hosts were sent out of the tournament in Pool A, having failed to beat Australia or Wales.
Ireland coach Joe Schmidt ruled himself out of the running for the job in recent weeks, and now today Michael Cheika, who took over the Wallabies 12 months ago has officially ruled himself out of contention.
World Cup winning coach Jake Smith still remains the favourite with talks that Andy Farrell may take charge of England for the Six Nations as White is apparently unwilling to step down from his current post until the end of the Top 14 season.
