COMMENT - Edwards a worthy recipient of star

THE term legend is used too much when it comes to sport stars and their achievements in the current era.

But few would argue with the fact that Shaun Edwards can quite justifiably be referred to as a Wigan legend.

And for that reason he is a worthy recipient of his star outside the Life Centre.

Edwards not only scaled the absolute heights during his playing career – his record of appearances, tries and honours will be extremely hard to better – his coaching career is also on the rise.

But it should not be forgotten that the man is a role model and has also done huge amounts raising funds and promoting various charities to date.

Wigan is a town that is steeped in sporting tradition and sporting success and Shaun Edwards is an enduring part of that heritage.

His achievements deserve to be preserved, his example should be followed.

We would like to pass on our congratulations to a true Wigan legend.
