In the Guardian article from which this thread has arisen, Edwards speaks only of the possibility of "re-learning" his (rugby league) "trade" as an assistant coach in the ARL... nowhere does it suggest that he had received any concrete offers at all.

Carlsberg don't do Soldiers, but if they did, they would probably be Brits.

Exactly - and I'm sure that's all he was suggesting in the aforementioned article. He wasn't boasting about having a line of Australian rugby league clubs pleading with him to coach them.

Edwards is far more modest than people give him credit for, he is also a sponge, soaking up sporting coaching knowledge.

Edwards would very quickly adapt back into rugby from union, If you think he has not continued to study in detail the game that made him, then, you very much under-estimate him.

He is, from what I've read about his time with Wales RU, an excellent and inspirational man-manager, and has years of Rugby League experience to draw upon.

I'd like to see him back in the game for sure.

I'd love to see him back in the game, and anybody else who has ever moved across to Union, but he would need to learn his trade and not be given the role of England Head Coach.

I don't think anyone sensible is saying he should parachuted in at the top. Maybe assistant coach at Salford, perhaps? Are you reading this, Dr K? ;)

It has been a suggestion time and again on discussions around England manager - the likes of Edwards and Farrell are brought up regularly.

I did say "anyone sensible". :D

That said, if Edwards did return to the game, with his ambition, he might well end up in that job at some time in the future.

he won't be back anytime soon. Why would he want itchy wool when he has smooth silk?

Last season, Shaun Edwards was suspended by Wales for one match for getting into a heated dispute with another of the backroom staff. He's always been volatile and possibly Warren Gatland thought, or was advised, that a more amenable attitude was expected for a coach of a touring team.

He has done pretty well for Wales in Gatland's absence and probably has had a bigger personal responsibility. I think Wales are touring during the summer and he may be co-coach of the touring party.

Yep. Your statement of the facts seems to be being largely ignored though.

I wonder why?

maybe because most people hadnt read the article and assumed the OP hadnt made stuff up.
The conversation has sort of moved on from the NRL offers.
