Ecstatic England lost but who is Shaun Edwards?
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me to be honest!

Water under the bridge I know ancient loyal but see what the DT says today.

'France faithful and forlorn fell head over heels in love with a son of Wigan, Shaun Edwards, the coach that England forgot.
Edwards may only have a few words of French at his grasp, but the team are already speaking his language, that of heart and soul to go with the muscle and bone.
There is no need of an interpreter to translate desire and defiance.
How wise of the French Federation to share his signature through to the World Cup in 2023.
The long suffering French supporters can all dream again, all believe again'

Don't pretend we did not foul up big and proper with not giving him a cast iron contract.

He could be the best coach in the world but he's burned his bridges with Wigan imo.

Could or even should Wigan have handled the farce better - of course they should. I cannot believe that a businessman like IL acted in such a shambolic way.

However, Shaun Edwards continues to try and portray himself as the victim in this. Based on the evidence I have seen this was not the case.

Frankly I've lost all respect for the guy.

There's nothing there that suggests he'd be a top coach in RL after so many years away from the game. All the plaudits above impact his history and knowledge as a union coach only.

Never thought I'd say this in a million years, but this saga, and the way Edwards has handled it in the media, has soured my opinion of the guy. shame.

Morley the best bit for me was watching/listening to Saint Jeremy Guscott choking on his words as he had to praise the change Edwards had made so quickly on teaching the French forwards to tackle.
