Northampton Saints ‘target’ Stuart Lancaster responds to speculation
Leinster senior coach Stuart Lancaster has revealed that he has not been contacted by Northampton Saints about their vacant director of rugby position.
“It’s almost an irrelevant point really because I’ve not spoken to anyone from any English club,” he told the Irish Examiner.
“They have not contacted me and I have not contacted them so to have me linked is pure speculation from my point of view.
“As I have said consistently, it wasn’t a hard decision to stay at Leinster and extend my contract by another year. I’m really enjoying what I’m doing, it fits my family. I’m coaching a great team in two good competitions. That’s all that’s on my mind.”
When asked if he would be tempted by an offer from another club, Lancaster said he “can’t see it happening” and asked why he would want to explore other options when he is already at a “great club”.
