Woodward revealed he had other job offers since Jonny Wilkinson'sdrop-goal gave England a dramatic extra-time final victory against Australia inSydney in November.,p> However, he insisted: "I love this job. It would have beeneasy to go and do motivational talks and maybe move on to another sport but I stillthink I am a young coach (48) who can give something to improving thisEngland team. When you have the passion for it you have to carry on.
"To see if we can reproduce it and go to another tournamentand win it again is something I would like to do."

Looking ahead to the southern hemisphere tour, Woodward said:"It will be very tough. It's the end of a long season but we are looking forwardto it. The reason we won the World Cup is because we have relished goinghead to head with southern hemisphere teams.
"We have beaten the southern hemisphere teams 12 games in arow, home and away, and it's my job now to keep that momentum going. We are at ourbest when we play these sides and I just hope we will have everyone fit."
And Woodward insisted he would not risk ace goalkicker Wilkinson'sfitness. The Newcastle stand-off missed the whole Six Nations followingshoulder surgery and has still to return to top-flight rugby. "I'm just leaving it up to him," said Woodward. "Ifhe is 100 percent fit I will take him. If he isn't I will not take him and we will lookforward to having him back in the side for the autumn.
"Australia and New Zealand are not the places to take anyonewho is not fully fit, not even someone who is 99 percent fit."
