SHAUN EDWARDS will continue in his role as defence coach of Wales for the next four years.
The 45-year-old last week became a free agent after parting ways with London Wasps a month after his contract with the Red Dragons expired.
There was speculation that he link up with England in some capacity.
However, he has inked a new deal with Wales that will see him remain contracted with the side until 2015.
“I concluded negotiations with Shaun over the weekend and am extremely pleased to be able to announce we have secured his services up to and including the rugby World Cup in 2015," says Wales Rugby Union chief executive Richard Lewis.
Edwards helped Wales to a Six Nations Grand Slam in 2008 and played an important role in its run to the Rugby World Cup semifinals.
He has also guided Wasps to two Heineken Cups and four English Premiership titles and worked with the British and Irish Lions on their tour of South Africa in 2009.« Back to Articles
