Jake White, the 2007 Rugby World Cup-winning coach with South Africa, has been appointed as the new head coach for Toyota Verblitz, the Top League side announced Friday.

The 53-year-old joins the side from French club Montpellier, which he has been coaching since 2014. He previously coached the Brumbies and Sharks, following his three-year stint with the Springboks, which culminated with South Africa beating England 15-6 in the final in Paris.
