Shaun Edwards’ future likely to be in France after World Cup

Shaun Edwards’ global training future appears set to be following the Rugby World Cup in France.
Edwards will abandon his assistant coach role with Wales after the championship, finishing a 12-year stint with this group.
Throughout this moment, former Wigan rugby league celebrity Edwards was a crucial figure in plotting three Grand Slams four Six Nations title triumphs and a World Cup semi-final look.
He had been poised to create a post-World Cup return to Wigan but this understanding was declared as formally being off and he then rejected a fresh Welsh Rugby Union agency.
France – and a part with the national group – continues to be his speculated port of call for many months.
Speaking on Monday, defence specialist Edwards said that he was“going to France,“ while also adding there had been“a couple of things to sort out there, therefore it is not definite.“
Asked if he would rather go in the World Cup in Japan settled in his thoughts on what he’s doing , Edwards added:“I have gone in the last two World Cups understanding if we do not do well I will not have any job later.
„So I would rather maintain edge. I used to signal one-year contracts Wigan occasionally“
FRF president Bernard Laporte is a known admirer of the Lancastrian, although the French Rugby Federation has up to now made no statement regarding any swoop for Edwards.
Edwards, meanwhile, says he’s“a little bit sick“ of seeing different states competition Rugby World Cup finals.
And he has set himself a goal of breaking mould by helping Wales reach the showpiece occasion on.
Edwards viewed after captain Sam Warburton was sent off against France, as Wales endured an agonising departure, after an Wales squad saw itself edged out at Twickenham by quarter-final opponents South Africa.
„We’ve played relatively well at World Cups so far,“ he said. „But I’m a bit sick of seeing everybody else in the finals. That’s the way I work.
„There is only one defence coach from the northern hemisphere who’s ever won the World Cup, and that is Phil Larder [together with England in 2003].
„Phil was a great mentor to me he led the way for individuals from rugby team to come into heterosexual marriage, him and Clive Griffiths – plus now I’ve got a lot to thank them .
„So I have put myself a small goal, trying to enter a final and only take it from that point.
„I was so happy I didn’t have to watch the one [closing ] in New Zealand (2011) because we had been on the plane home, thank God.
„I didn’t watch it three or four weeks afterwards, but then saw how close France were to winning it. And the previous one (2015), it was painful watching it.“
