Club Statement: Shaun Edwards

Post by josie andrews » Mon Mar 18, 2019 10:47 am

Wigan Warriors are aware of quotes from Shaun Edwards regarding his future contractual arrangements.

Following the conclusion of the Six Nations and Shaun’s comments, we have been seeking dialogue with Shaun directly since Sunday to clarify to Wigan his intentions.

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

I suppose its better than nothing.

At least we now know the club are trying to get in touch with him to sort things out. Without this statement it seemed we weren't interested and were happy for him to look elsewhere.

Or a convincing one!

This seems more of "we can't say nothing" than anything else, sorry but IL and Rads have had fans pants down in a big way here, the relationship between the club and SE has already taken damage and he isn't even in post yet!

If it does finally to come out that he was never in fact given a contract to sign the only answer is to force Lenagan out starting with a total boycott of the clubs next home game. This is the biggest disgrace since the club signed TAP as our coach when I gave up my seat in the West Stand after 48 years (then) as a committed supporter come hell or high water. I am hoping against hope that its all press hype but this non statement seems to suggest all the rumours on here for the past several weeks have been true and no blame can be laid at Edwards door.

Ok,reading that laughable “statement” is Edwards now out of contract with wales?

If so what’s the World Cup got to do with it?

Why hasn’t he started at Wigan if his commitment is over?

I think it’s clear he’s got a union job lined up somewhere hopefully this nonsense will be put to bed one way or the other today,our club and it’s not Lenegans own club, he just signs the cheques is and has become a laughing stock

Surely if a contract was signed the comment would simply be "Wigan can confirm a contract is in place for 2020 and we will seek clarification with Shaun Edwards over his comments"

Lets face it SE is not the kind of guy to play games he is a straight talker my guess is that IL/Rads have maybe either changed the terms they spoke about or SE has seen all the press around williams and said "i want to know what im walking into" and theyve not been able to answer and since no contract has been signed SE has thought it might be better to not taint his legacy

Out of curisoity is there any ban in union for people associating with league like there use to be? Couldnt that explain only verbal agreements until after the WC.

Its not a very big statement but again Fans jumping at IL and the club when there is only he said she said talk atm.

Im sorry the fact that hes aired it all publically shows hes not the untouchable figure.

Hes dragged wigans name into the mud a club he supposadly cares a great deal about according to some.

He is clearly putting his name in the shop window to get the biggest deal he can.

If he wasnt coming he could have quietly gone about sorting out a new job, playing it in the media makes me think there is something else to it.
