CONFIRMED: Shaun Edward will leave Wales

Wales have confirmed that defence coach Shaun Edwards will leave after the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Edwards, who had been offered a new contract by Wales, decided not to join rugby league side Wigan as head coach.

The 52-year-old has also been linked with France’s national union team as well as some English Premiership clubs.

“After more than 10 years with Wales this has been an incredibly difficult decision to reach but I won’t be renewing my contract,” Edwards said.

“I would like to thank Warren [Gatland, Wales head coach] and the WRU [Welsh Rugby Union] for the opportunity I have had working with the national team.

“We have won four Six Nations titles during my time with Wales, but I sincerely hope and believe that the best days are yet to come and I am fully focused on seeing what we can achieve in Japan.”
