Former England coach Stuart Lancaster has revealed he wants his next coaching job to be in the southern hemisphere.
He resigned in November after the hosts' failure to go beyond the group stage in the World Cup after defeats to Wales and Australia at Twickenham.
Lancaster has been out of the game since then and admits he still thinks of the World Cup failure "every minute of every day".
The coach, who spent four years in the role, has been helping out with coaching teams close to his home in Leeds.
And the 46-year-old said he is keen on a full-time role again with the Super Rugby tournament top of his list.
"The lure of coaching Super Rugby and wanting to coach in the southern hemisphere is a big one for me," he told the BBC.
"You can't create opportunities and you certainly can't create yourself a job but the southern hemisphere would be a tremendous challenge from a personal point of view and it would be a great, great opportunity.
"But we'll see - the Premiership, player development, wherever. I'm open-minded at the moment.
"You need a new project to get your teeth stuck into because if not you're always dwelling on the old one.
"I don't feel so burnt by the whole experience that I never want to coach again."
Lancaster added he is keen to move on from last year's World Cup experience and has visited clubs in Wellington, Brisbane,Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Johannesburg and Cape Town to gather knowledge.
"A lot of things have happened since then but equally it's still very fresh in my mind. It's been a tough six months."
