Edwards in line to replace Kidney
Wales defence coach Shaun Edwards is reportedly a strong contender to take over from Declan Kidney as the Ireland head coach.
The Mail on Sunday reports that the former rugby league player feels he is under-paid and not been properly rewarded for his part in Wales’ success in recent years. He is also said to be upset that he was not included as part of Warren Gatland’s coaching team for this year’s Lions tour.
Edwards has been with Wales since 2008 and helped them to Six Nations grand slams in 2008 and 2012. He was part of the Lions coaching team on the 2009 tour to South Africa and was assistant coach when London Wasps won the Heineken Cup in 2004 and 2007.
