Lancaster Beats Mallett to England Rugby Coach’s Job, Mail Says

March 29 (Bloomberg) -- England is set to hire Stuart Lancaster as head coach of the national rugby team after his name was put forward to the Rugby Football Union’s board for final approval, the Daily Mail reported.

RFU Chief Executive Officer Ian Ritchie recommended that Lancaster, who was England’s interim coach for the Six Nations, be appointed to the role permanently after he was interviewed for the post last week along with South African Nick Mallett, the Mail said, without saying where it got the information.

An announcement is likely to be made today or tomorrow, the newspaper added.

The 42-year-old Lancaster, who took over for the Six Nations after Martin Johnson quit Nov. 16 following the World Cup in New Zealand, guided England to second place in the championship behind Grand Slam winner Wales. England won three away matches in the tournament for the first time.
