Larkham has doubt about job

Aap

CANBERRA - Brumbies head coach Stephen Larkham admits he questioned whether he was truly ready for the club's top job after being informed director of rugby Laurie Fisher was departing for European rugby at the season's end.

The World Cup winning Wallabies flyhalf has committed to another three years as Brumbies head coach, taking him through to the end of the 2017 season.

The announcement comes as Fisher confirmed he will finish his tenure to pursue an opportunity with Gloucester.

Fisher's sudden exit will see Larkham's position with the Brumbies change to a more traditional head coaching role.

Currently the two coaches split duties, but the Brumbies have advised they won't refill the director or rugby position.

"It came out of the blue. (Fisher) wasn't actively looking for anything, but when he got given the opportunity I was pretty aware he would take it," Larkham said.

Larkham's ascension to the top job comes a year earlier than what was envisaged by the club when World Cup winning coach Jake White was grooming him for the role.
