messa, I suggest you read the document I linked carefully...here is the relevant section:
Sexual harassment may include:
staring or leering
unnecessary familiarity, such as deliberately brushing up against you or unwelcome touching
suggestive comments or jokes
insults or taunts of a sexual nature
intrusive questions or statements about your private life
displaying posters, magazines or screen savers of a sexual nature
sending sexually explicit emails or text messages
inappropriate advances on social networking sites
accessing sexually explicit internet sites
requests for sex or repeated unwanted requests to go out on dates
behaviour that may also be considered to be an offence under criminal law, such as physical assault, indecent exposure, sexual assault, stalking or obscene communications.
As far as the law is concerned what he did can be regarded as sexual harassment in the workplace.
No matter how you try and defend it as a bad joke, the law does not agree with you.

Spot on Sheek. I honestly believe that at this stage with the Super Rugby pre-season about to start, the optimum situation would be to give Jake White a contract til the end of the World Cup, with Cheika, Larkham, Foley or whoever to join as assistants AFTER the Super Rugby season. This would give them guidance from a RWC winning coach at the major international event in our code, with a view to them carrying on as mooted post RWC 2015. Jake probably wouldn't want to hang around much longer than that anyway.
