Eddie Jones has been tipped to return to Australia and assume a new coaching role.
But it's not with the Wallabies.
Last month, Jones led the British rugby team to reach the World Cup final before their downfall against a stubborn and serious South African team.

With Australia's campaign ending in disaster and the release of Michael Cheika, Jones was asked to come home and lead the Wallabies again.
However, there is also another job that the 59-year-old is considering.
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Jones wants to have the talent to become a NRL coach – and that this would amount to taking over from one of the greatest coaches of the modern era.
"From what I can understand," wrote Danny Weidler. "He told his buddies to succeed Wayne Bennett at the end of Souths calls.
"He has a weakness for the club. It is doubtful that the Rabbitohs are aware of his ambitions because he shared his thoughts on the league with a handful of people. "
Bennett's contract will expire next November, when he will approach 71 years old.

Born in Tasmania, Jones is a lover of the league and recently invited Canberra Raiders coach Ricky Stuart to visit England during the World Cup.
Stuart said that after what he had seen, nothing prevented him from replicating the success of his union coach in the league.
"Eddie loves his league," Stuart said.
"The way the English team played … let's just say I've never seen a rugby club play so similar to a league club.
"I do not know if he wants to coach in the NRL.
"Could he do it? I do not doubt that he could if it was on his radar. Transfer a code bus to code … well, they've never been so close, so yes, it's feasible. "
