Jamie Joseph said that loyalty to Japan was the reason he did not contest for the All Black job last year.

Joseph decided early on in the search for the new All Blacks coach to pull out off the running last year after the World Cup.

Joseph had one off the best runs in Japanese Rugby history when his side ended top off Pool A beating Ireland and Scotland to make the Quarter Finals.

They could not get past the Springboks who won the World Cup in Japan but won over the respect off everyone over the world.

Applying for another job while you apply for a renewal off your current job does not show loyalty and that is a value Joseph have learned through the years.

The fact that the sport is professional does not mean you should not have loyalty, it is still important in life Joseph said.

He still believe he can coach the All Blacks later in his career.
