Brumbies bosses, for the second time in a month, poured cold water on reports that World Cup-winning coach Jake White would be leaving the franchise.
As this website reported on Sunday, despite his previous public denials, the former Springbok coach, White, has once again been linked to an international position - this time the England job.
In October The Brumbies head coach, White, dismissed speculation he will leave Canberra and return to South Africa.
At the weekend White, who masterminded South Africa's World Cup triumph in 2007, was linked to the England position after Martin Johnson's resignation in the wake of his side's controversial World Cup in New Zealand last month.
The English media, desperate for some positive news in the wake of their team's disgraceful performance at the World Cup, twisted an interview with BBC Radio 5 live's Sportsweek programme so that it appeared the 48-year-old White was keen to coach England.
They played down the significance of his statement - in the same interview - that he has a four-year contract with the Brumbies and will not be leaving Canberra at this stage.
The media ignored the part where he said he might consider such a move "sometime in the future".
"I'm very happy at the Brumbies. I've committed myself to them and in the long run it will make me a better rugby coach," White told the BBC.
"My Brumbies bosses have been very good to me and want me to take the team to another level.
"They have backed me and it's only right that I would back them in times when they might think I'd let them down."
Brumbies Chief Executive Andrew Fagan said White still had international rugby ambitions, but not before his four-year contract with the Canberra-based Super 15 franchise was carried through.
"Whenever anyone asks him if he's interested in international jobs, he'll forever say yes," Fagan told reporters.
"But he's not talking about now."
Fagan said White, who took up his new position at the Brumbies in May, reaffirmed his commitment to the organisation on Monday.
"He [White] called me into his office and said I just want to clarify that I'm 100 percent committed," Fagan said.
"He's made it abundantly clear to us. I wasn't concerned by the articles.
"I see it more that we've got a World Cup-winning coach so with his credentials, whenever there's a vacant job, his name will be linked to it."
Fagan said there was no clause in White's Brumbies' contract that allowed him to seek a release for an international position.
"Nor did he ask for one," he said.
Last month White was also forced to deny reports that he will leave Canberra, after he was linked to the Springbok job.
"I've got a contract here in Canberra, I'm enjoying putting the program together with a great group of staff and players and I'm definitely not leaving," White said at the time.
White said he would one day like to return to his native South Africa and to the Springboks but at this stage he was committed to the ACT based team.
“As a proud South African it has always been my intention to one day return to my homeland and as an ambitious coach, leading the national team again is also something I would like to achieve in the future.
“I will not turn my back on South Africa but for at least the next four years I am 100 per cent committed to leading the Brumbies and returning Super Rugby success to the people of Canberra.”
