Wales coach ponders next move post Japan World Cup

Wales coach, Shaun Edwards hasn't decided on his next move after September's Rugby World Cup. An initial plan to join Rugby Leagues Wigan, looks to be a thing of the past. 
Wales' defence coach, reached a medal haul, earning his 50th winners' medal as a coach and a player, during his career.
 The 50th medal was sealed after Gatland's side romped to a 25-7 triumph over Ireland at the Principality Stadium.
Edwards is to leave his role after the World Cup in Japan.
"I haven't signed a contract with anybody yet," Edwards said.
After agreeing in August 2018, to work with Wigan Warriors, but a contract was never sent to him from the Rugby League team.

"I agreed with Wigan and thought we would sign a contract," he said.

"But then Wigan said, 'it's OK, we'll sign one later, and I thought that was unusual. And that was nine months ago." Wigan are yet to respond at this stage.

Edwards is familiar with the Wigan club, having played for them over a 14 year span, earning 36 caps for Great Britain.
