The fact Edwards has said the club told him they would sign a contract later has left me incredulous.

What on earth is IL playing at?

Organising a press conference, parading Edwards as the coach for 2020 and he didn’t sign a contract? Rank stupidity.

The idea he did this just in case Lam was successful and so he then would not have to break the deal with Edwards is a joke. That is no way to employ anyone. You either want the man in 2020 or you don’t.

I have to say though why doesn’t Edwards just get on the phone and ask IL what is going on? And likewise the other way, why doesn’t IL contact Edwards? All this going on in the press doesn’t make anyone look good. It should be dead easy to sort this out between the two of them.

The the the club is being run at the moment is amateurish in the extreme. Can’t some journalist pin IL down and drag a statement out if him?

I guess we can officially tick the box to say he hasn’t signed then.

Piss poor AGAIN from Wigan what a shambles. We need to start putting pressure on our Chairman methinks.

Like i said on the Williams transfer saga, i only believe the BBC or Sky Websites or the official Wigan one.

Well now the Edward story is on the BBC Site, so i think its time either Lenagan or Radlinski came out with a statement.

If its true that we aren't getting Edwards next year then they should take a break for a few months as a lot of fans will be very unhappy.

We really have become the club that couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery!

I think edwards has no other option but to answer honestly when asked about his future. I think the cringeworthy men at Twickenham will be keeping an eye on this quite closely as I think Eddie Jones will be gone after the RUWC.

At this rate we will have Powell as head coach

I’m not in the least bit surprised with this,the way the club is being run at the moment is odd to say the least,the only way to correct this,and I make no secret that I think it’s a monumental gamble,is to get a photo of him signing a contract,as frankly the way things are at the moment if the club tells me it’s sunday I check the Callander first,not that you need to check because the communications with fans is it’s usual poor state.
