Jake White successfully rebuilt the Brumbies and Ben Alexander believes he can do the same for the Wallabies. After Eddie Jones left the Wallabies following their World Cup failure, Rugby Australia is now seeking a replacement. The search for a new head coach will be led by Peter Horne, the new director of high-performance. Despite the state of Australian rugby, several well-credentialled candidates, including Dan McKellar, Stephen Larkham, and Andy Friend, are interested in the role. Joe Schmidt, a former Ireland coach, and member of Ian Foster’s All Blacks coaching team, is also interested. Alexander, a 72-Test Wallaby, believes South African White should be considered for the role in light of upcoming events, including the British and Irish Lions’ tour in 2025 and a home World Cup. Sources have revealed that White would be interested in the role. White is known for turning the Brumbies around during his two years with the team. He is also a good communicator and a reliable leader. Despite negative perceptions and misconceptions about White, Alexander believes he is a good fit. Rugby Australia is not rushing to name a Wallabies coach, and Jones’ successor is likely to be announced in the weeks before Super Rugby resumes in late February.
