Sir Ian McGeechan in the frame to coach Lions in Australia in 2013

The Lions will appoint a head coach for the 2013 tour to Australia a month after the end of the Six Nations, and they have not ruled out Sir Ian McGeechan taking charge for a fifth time.

McGeechan, who first coached the Lions in Australia in 1989, said at the end of the 2009 trip to South Africa that he did not anticipate being involved in the game full-time four years later. He has since become Bath's director of rugby.
