Catt to take up England role
Mike Catt has been confirmed as part of England's new coaching set-up after Wayne Smith decided against a role in the team.
The World Cup winner is currently the attack coach at London Irish but will leave his position with the Exiles after their last Aviva Premiership game against Gloucester next weekend to take up his new role with the national side for the tour to South Africa in June.
England head coach Stuart Lancaster said in a statement: "Mike has played at the top level and is highly respected. He has done a great job whilst coaching at London Irish and we are looking forward to working with him on this South Africa tour.
"He is experienced in playing in South Africa and this will be invaluable as we prepare for this challenging and exciting tour."
Meanwhile, Smith, who was the assistant coach for the All Blacks who won the World Cup last autumn, has decided against a coaching role with England.
He had reportedly been offered a variety of positions in the new set-up but has decided to turn them down, citing 'family reasons', and will remain in New Zealand as coach for the Waikato Chiefs.
