White’s agent Craig Livingstone confirmed to Supersport that his client was in France to talk with Bayonne.

“Jake is, like a number of other coaches, exploring his options for the next season and beyond.”

“There have been a number of interesting offers but nothing has been finalised yet,” Livingstone told SuperSport

“He is in France at Bayonne, but Bernard Laporte is a close friend of his, and he is meeting him. What may come from that I have no idea.”
