France want Shaun Edwards after World Cup as defence coach spurns Wales offer

France want Shaun Edwards to join their rugby revolution after the World Cup and the prospect of one of the world’s leading defence coaches moving to the other side of the Channel increased on Thursday when he turned down the offer of a new contract with Wales.

Edwards has been Wales’s defence coach since 2008, a period in which they have won three grand slams and four Six Nations titles and reached a World Cup semi-final in climbing to No 2 in the world, their highest position in the rankings.

Wayne Pivac was last year named as Warren Gatland’s successor as Wales’s head coach after this year’s World Cup. As he was considering his back-up team, Edwards agreed to become Wigan’s head coach from January. That deal fell through last month and opened talks with Edwards, offering him a four-year contract.

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.
