No RFU return for Woodward
Rugby Football Union chief executive Ian Ritchie insists there are no imminent plans to employ Sir Clive Woodward.
Woodward was in charge of the England team for their finest hour as he guided them to glory at the 2003 World Cup but his reign as coach ended the following year after his charges suffered a dip in form. A short stint in football coaching followed before the former England centre was handed the post of the British Olympic Association's director of sport. Following the success of London 2012, Woodward has left his post with rumours that he was set to move back to Twickenham for a role within the RFU's set up. But Ritchie, while praising the 56-year-old for his achievements in the sport, has made it clear that Woodward will not be joining his management team any time soon. "We don't have any vacancies," he said. "I respect totally what Clive did in rugby and the Olympics, but I am not going to get into hypotheticals. "I am very happy with the way things are progressing at the moment."
