Edwards muses on convenience of ‘hypothetical’ England job

Shaun Edwards indicated a job with England would be convenient given his proximity to Twickenham, yet he noted talk of a role with the Rugby Football Union (RFU) was “just hypothetical”.

Despite having last year agreed to take over as head coach of Wigan Warriors, it has since emerged Edwards only made “an oral agreement” with the Super League club, and he has spoken about his willingness to “consider all offers”.

It has been suggested the RFU may be keen to bring Edwards on board once his time with Wales comes to an end after the Rugby World Cup.

London-based Edwards lives near the RFU’s headquarters at Twickenham and he mused about the possibility of a role there in an interview with The Sunday Times.

“Unless you get an offer from someone it is all hypothetical, isn’t it,” he said.

“But it’s true Twickenham is just down the road, much closer than Wales. I could get the tube there.”

Dai Young, director of rugby for Premiership side Wasps, revealed on Saturday that his club had spoken to Edwards about him returning to a team he coached for 10 years from 2001.
