Lancaster assists Stormers

Date published: January 19 2016

Former England head coach Stuart Lancaster has been spotted working with the Stormers' coaching staff.

According to Netwerk24, Lancaster was spotted at the Western Province training base in Bellville on Monday working with the Stormers' coaching staff.

Whether there is any prospect of a long-term collobaration between Lancaster and the Stormers remains unclear, but Lancaster has made known his interest of working in Super Rugby after stepping down as England boss last year following the Rugby World Cup.

Robbie Fleck was appointed as the Stormers' interim head coach for the 2016 season following the quick departure of Eddie Jones.

Fleck's inexperience as a head coach could lead to WP appointing someone with more knowledge as an assistant, for which Lancaster would certainly fit the bill after his four years with England.
