Hansen says no

New Zealand boss Steve Hansen insists there is no chance he would be interested in taking over from England coach Eddie Jones.

Hansen’s contract with the All Blacks expires after the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

But the 58-year-old is certain he won’t take charge of another international side if he does step down.

England finished a disappointing fifth in this year’s Six Nations.

However, Jones is tied to the team until 2021 after signing a two-year extension in January that is subject to a break clause dependent on performance at the global showpiece.

“I can say I won’t be coaching England,” Hansen told BBC Radio Five Live on Sunday.
