Jake White

1st Jan 1970 1.85m/85kg Coach

White is notable for coaching South Africa to victory in the 2004 Tri Nations and the 2007 Rugby World Cup, becoming one of the most renowned coaches of the time.

Among his other decorated achievements with the Springboks, White took the team from 6th on the IRB World Rankings (2003) to 1st (2007) before walking away.

His following coaching role was with the Brumbies, joining for the 2012 season and taking them from 13th on the ladder in 2011 to second in 2013.

Unfortunately for the Super Rugby franchise, White exited with two years left on his contract because "his heart's not in it".

White joined Montpellier as their Director of Rugby in 2014 and lead the French side to a Top 14 quarterfinal in 2016 & a semi-final in 2017.

White spent 3 years at helm of Montpellier and in March 2017, he signed a deal with Japanese club Toyota Verblitz to coach the club for the 2017/18 season.
