Andy Farrell has stepped down as the head coach of Saracens just months after turning down the opportunity to join the England coaching staff.
However, it now seems as though Farrell will rejoin the England set up as backs coach as Kevin Sorrell steps into his role with Saracens in what has come as a major shock.
The decision was made last night and now Saracens will demand a huge compensation fee from the Rugby Football Union as Farrell still had two years remaining on his contract.
"We are sorry to see Andy leave and wish him well in the future," said Nigel Wry, the club chairman.
The Saracens director of rugby Mark McCall also revealed the role of Sorrell, saying: "Kevin is making a swift and successful transition from outstanding player to outstanding coach and we are delighted has agreed to take up this important role."
Farrell first joined England during the RBS Six Nations when he worked alongside Stuart Lancaster and Graham Rowntree, but decided not to take the role on a permanent basis.
Now it seems his mind has been changed and he could even work alongside Mike Catt who has been hired on a two month contract that covers the upcoming tour of South Africa.
