Dragons have held talks with Wales defence coach Edwards over succeeding Bernard Jackman, who left the Welsh region this week.

Edwards is in line for the job until at least the end of the 2018-19 season in the summer.

The 52-year-old would continue working with Wales until the end of the 2019 World Cup in Japan.

Adrian Lam is head coach for 2019 until he passes the baton to Edwards.
