Rumours in Wales he is taking over as head coach of the struggling Newport Gwent Dragons until the end of the season (summer 2019) as well as continuing as Wales defence coach. He's a busy man.

The worrying thing I aw on the BBC report was that he would take over until "at least the end of the 2018-19 season". I don't like that "at least". While I don't think that he (or anyone getting the Wigan job) is nailed-on for success I do really want to see what he can bring, so I hope this doesn't throw a spanner in the works of our deal. Getting a bit ahead of myself but, after all, money talks.

He won't take that job.
It's the worst job in Welsh RU.
Actually, it's the worst job in Northern Hemisphere RU.

1. Edwards doesn't break contracts, hence why we are having to wait for him.

2. If he did break a contract, then I dare say there will be a hefty compensation fee due from either him or whoever poaches him.

I didnt want to say anything but i thought the moment the Lam/Edwards deal was announced that we would never actually see Edwards at Wigan and it was just a PR stunt similar to Sailor.

I understand why you didn't want to say anything. What I don't understand is why you then revised that policy. Something to do with 10 pints of lager?

No ive not had a drink for months thanks.

Since the earlier posts raised concern over Edwards coming, i thought it the right time to raise my own concerns. Now that the novelty factor of Edwards return has worn off, let us be honest. Who would really bring in a guy with no real RL coaching experience who has been out of the game for nearly 2 decades? As good as he was back in the day, he is bound to be out of touch with the game after all these years. I would be much happier if he had spent at least a season as assistant to Wane or even Lam who at is least up to speed on the modern game. I find it hard to believe that Mr Lenegan would take such a huge risk which makes me wonder if it was just a PR stunt.
