Stuart Hogg confirms he is ‘excited’ about the return of rugby with many clubs in the mix – Page 3 of 3


The former England boss, who has seen his reputation go through the roof since the disastrous 2015 World Cup, is currently Racing 92 boss after joining from Leinster last summer.

ancaster had been the Irish province’s senior coach since 2016, working under head coach Leo Cullen, while he spent four years as England boss before stepping down in 2015.

During his time at Leinster, the Irish province won the Heineken Champions Cup in 2018 and four PRO14 titles.

The former England boss revealed he could be interested in returning to England.

“If you ask my wife, she might question my sanity if I said yes. There are probably other parts of the world I would like to coach in as well. The Southern Hemisphere would be a big challenge for me. I would love to get into coaching in Super Rugby in some capacity, or international rugby in the Southern Hemisphere.

“So you never say never, but I don’t think it’s top of the list and I definitely think Steve Borthwick will keep the job until 2027. I’m committed here (at Racing) until 2027, so let’s see.

“I don’t think you should ever say never. I don’t think you should ever be so hurt or so damaged that you could never go back anywhere. When the political will is there and the time is right, I would hate to be so hurt or angry about certain things that it would stop me from doing certain things. I don’t want to be that kind of person.”
