Excellent move for Shaun. He is a Wigan legend.

Not making Shaun the defence coach is just another error to add to the catalogue that Eddie Jones and the RFU have been accumulating in recent seasons.

Best of luck to him though! And hopefully we will see him again in the union code. When looking at our current defence I still reminisce about the wasps blitz defence circa 04

Not sure the blitz defence was good for the game. Great for us, but like other innovations such as Munster's choke tackle tactic, I would happily trade them for a bit more space when our heroes take to the stage. On a side note how many times gave England failed to pick up on SE?

Club experience and success, check, international experience and success check, respected by all, check.

Saw Shaun being sent off at Wembley in 1994 when playing for GB against Australia. GB won after a great try by Jonathan Davies, the favourite commentator of some on this site.
Shaun made a fantastic contribution to Wasps and continues to do so for Wales. The RFU turned down both him and Garland - their loss.
Shaun's son was in the Wasps Academy. Anyone one know what happened to him.

Anybody see the longish interview with Shaun (& is it David Lam?) prior to the Wigan/Cas match yesterday where SE said he'd spoken to big name RU players who were interested in making the switch to RL? I assumed he meant Welsh players.

I didn't see the interview but I'm wondering if the statement was made to partly "big up" RL by implying RU players might switch.

Historically the main reason for RU players to switch code was money when RU was amateur.

I would have thought an average RU club player would make more (and have more opportunities to do so) than an average RL player

Super League salary cap is increasing to just over 2million with two marquee players outside of that so I'm guessing a fairly large RU name could get a similar wage in the right circumstances. With that said only a handful of RL clubs in that competition could afford it as the sport has sadly been in decline in the northern hemisphere. NRL is going very strong however, most of the top talent is going there for very good money.
