Gatland: No contact with England over coaching role

Warren Gatland has had no contact with England about taking over as coach after the World Cup.

The Wales boss will leave his post after the tournament in Japan, for which they are among the favourites to reach the latter stages.

Gatland revealed he has received numerous approaches from parties interested in appointing him when his World Cup duties are complete.

But he has had no communication with England, saying: "I haven't spoken to England at all.

"I think they were quite clear in what they were doing, in that they won't be making any appointments or talking to anyone until post-World Cup.

"I've had a number of approaches from different sources, so it's about making the right decision at the right time. I'm just weighing those things up.

"Really my whole focus is about the next seven months, Wales and the World Cup. I'm not too worried about whether I have a job or don't have a job and take a bit of a break.

"I'm a great believer in what will be will be, and something will potentially turn up."
