Got something to discuss about RL in general? Then this is the place to post it.

Shaun Edwards and defence

By Jeremy Guscott, who famously bottled the cross-code challenge in the 90s because it wasn't in his contract.

Nevertheless, it's interesting that he praises Wales' defence very highly, crediting SE for his effect after 11 years with Wales.

The pictures and captions also show how similar some of the moves are to League, and how well-drilled the Welsh are at spotting these and neutralising the opposition.

I think all those who've said Edwards has been out of League too long, should study these carefully and re-consider.

I also can't see our defence being as clueless as it currently looks on occasions once we've had a close season with Giz. We'll be as well-organised as we were last time we won the GF under, er, our previous coach.
