Former England head coach Stuart Lancaster has spoken for the first time about rumours linking him to the Leicester Tigers.
But as far as Lancaster is concerned there is no job available at the Tigers.
“My understanding is that Geordan Murphy has been appointed not just interim coach, he has been appointed the coach for the season so…”
Although Murphy officially remains as the interim head coach, Lancaster’s take on the situation appears to back up Leicester chief executive Simon Cohen’s stance on Murphy.
“There is no intention, unless the wheels completely fall off, to make any further changes. Every opportunity will be given to Geordan to make the most of the role.” Cohen told the BBC last week.
