Conor O’Shea is in demand at the moment.
Although Conor O’Shea had been touted as a replacement for Stuart Lancaster with England, it would seem that the RFU are zeroing in on Jake White. Nevertheless, the current Harlequins boss is now been linked with the vacant Italian position.
The news was reported by Gavin Mortimer, who Tweeted that while O’Shea remains in the running for the England job, he is in ‘pole position’ to take over from Jacque Brunel.

While many might question such a career move, having won a Premiership title and a European Challenge Cup with the Harlequins, O’Shea might be wanting to establish himself as an international coach.
