Edwards excited by Exiles link-up
Wales defence coach Shaun Edwards has been confirmed in the same position at Aviva Premiership club London Irish next season.
The Exiles had confirmed on Tuesday that Toby Booth, Justin Bishop and Neal Hartley would leave the club but have now drafted in the former Rugby League international.
Edwards will continue to work with the Wales national team but will join up with London Irish following the Dragons' summer tour of Australia, spending one day a week working with the Premiership side.
Edwards is relishing a return to club rugby, having formerly worked at Wasps, and told the Exiles' official website: "I'm excited at the opportunity of being involved in a Premiership club set-up again.
"London Irish has some fantastic players who I am looking forward to working with. The squad has put in some great performances this season and have been unlucky not to come away with more wins.
"I want to work with the team to see how we can then turn those frustrating last-minute defeats into victories."
