Despite his team’s World Cup quarter-final exit, the current Ireland boss is frequently mentioned as a top contender to take over if Steve Borthwick vacates his position as England boss.

“When you make a decision, you commit and that’s it,” said Farrell.

“And, you know, I’m very lucky that it wasn’t just me that was committing, it was my wife and kids as well.

“Because whether you think it’s a close flight or connected or whatever to the UK, it’s still living abroad. It is a big move, you know, kids out of school.

“That type of commitment is something that I’ll never forget from my family… I’m forever grateful.”

He continued: “We love it here. We’re loving life here and the rugby’s pretty good as well.”
