Wayne Smith may have turned down the offer to join England’s national setup, but he has also dismissed a prospective move to the troubled Blues.

The in-demand coach, who joined the currently high-flying Chiefs coaching set up after helping lead the All Blacks to the 2011 Rugby World Cup, has revealed his is not keen on moving from the Waikato based franchise because he hasn't achieved anything there yet.

Smith turned down an offer to join Stuart Lancaster's England, citing he was not comfortable helping a team to face the All Blacks, he also wants to remain close to his parents.

Along with the England job, Smith had been mooted as a replacement for Pat Lam whose Blues side has managed just one win in the new Super Rugby season.

And while the 55-year-old wouldn't rule out a move to the Blues in the future, he told Radio Sport he was currently committed to 'creating something special' at the Chiefs.
