Shaun Edwards says he still “loves” rugby league as he reveals Super League involvement

Shaun Edwards is one of the best rugby league players this country has ever produced.

He made nearly 500 appearances for a Wigan side who could be described as the best team ever and scored over 270 tries for them.

He had a crack at Australia with Balmain Tigers and played Super League with London Broncos and the Bradford Bulls for 12 games.

But like many, such as Leeds Rhinos legend Kevin Sinfield recently, the Wigan Warriors legend was lost to rugby union as defence coach for France.

However, speaking with France Blue, Edwards underlined how much he still enjoys rugby league and the role Super League side Catalans Dragons play in his life: “I love rugby and here, I enjoy the XIII and XV.

“First and foremost, I am a supporter! First with the 15-a-side rugby teams, it’s my job to watch the games and cheer on the French teams.

“And then there’s 13-a-side rugby with the Catalans Dragons. I know Steve McNamara well. I go to training sometimes, to matches often.

“I love going there because I can see rugby but it’s not my job! I just have to relax. Because actually what’s most difficult about my job, and I challenge you to do the same thing to see it, is that I have to focus only on defense and not offense when I watch a game.

“When I go to the Dragons, at least I can watch the attacks and enjoy the game.”
