Speakeasy Club presents… Shaun Edwards

Speakeasy Club is delighted to partner with the Old Penarthians RFC, in their centenary year and welcome Rugby’s dual code behemoth, Shaun Edwards to the Clubhouse on Saturday 2nd December.

Over 14 years representing hometown team Wigan in Rugby League, with over 450 appearances and over 270 tries. Shaun has 37 winners medals whilst playing in league, voted man of steel in 1990 and in 2015 was the 25th inductee in the Rugby league hall of fame. Shaun also had stints with London Broncos twice, Balmain Tigers in Sydney and Bradford Bulls.

After 10 years at Wasps working with a certain Warren Gatland, Shaun joined the Welsh National set up and over 12 years commanded incredible respect on and off the pitch. As well as a place on the 2009 British & Irish Lions tour as defence coach, there were 6 Six Nations Championships, 3 Grand slams and 2 World Cup Semi Finals (and plenty of great memories!).

Shaun joined the French National set up, winning another Grand Slam in 2022, becoming the only coach to win multiple Grand Slams with 2 different Nations in 6 Nations history.

Hosted by Speakeasy Club and supported by Old Penarthians RFC, Shaun will reminisce on some tales from his career on and off the pitch. This will be followed by a Q&A including a deep dive into his time with Wales, Wigan & the Lion’s (and who knows, maybe a special World Cup story?!) as well as questions from the audience.

We will also be raising money for charity on the night – for Business Beats Cancer Cymru – auctioning a signed France jersey, personalised to the winning bidder.
