England Rugby's next Head Coach?

As part of England's search for a successor to Eddie Jones next year, Nigel Melville, acting CEO at the RFU, apparently wants to speak to (among others) Warren Gatland, who leaves his role with Wales after the World Cup.

While Gatland has an undeniably proven track record I can't help feel that the RFU may be missing a trick here.

I am referring, of course, to one of Gatland's lieutenants, Shaun Edwards, whose CV also makes mightily impressive reading:

- English ๐Ÿ‘

 - International coaching experience  ๐Ÿ‘ - over 10 years as Wales defence coach and part of the 2009 Lions coaching team

- Head coach experience ๐Ÿ‘ - won the Heineken Cup, European Challenge Cup and 3 Premiership titles with Wasps.

I would have thought that Edwards was at least worth interviewing?
