CAPE TOWN - Jake White on Monday said he will look to a coaching job in South Africa as a stepping stone towards his ultimate ambition of getting back into the international coaching circuit.

Last week, White asked to be released from his contract at the Brumbies after he missed out on the Australia coaching job to Ewen McKenzie.

White, who is strongly linked with a Director of Rugby role at the Sharks, says he might even look closer to home.

"I live in Cape Town and my boys are in Cape Town, so I would love to coach Province."

White says the move to Durban would tick a lot of boxes as he'd link up with his former Bok captain John Smit.

"When you get a guy like John who is running the Sharks and I've known him since he was 16, it makes sense.

"The bottom line for me is that I am willing to go anywhere in South Africa, as long as I think I can add value. One of the things about taking the Brumbies was it was a job that suited me."

White says his burning desire is to repeat his success of 2007.

"I want to be involved in rugby and I want to win another World Cup, so I'm happy to help anybody. I'm South African and whatever experience I have as a coach, I'm happy to share that with anybody."
