Shaun Edwards has declared he is not in contention for the England coaching job in his original code.

The former Wigan and Great Britain half-back has been touted as a possible successor to Tony Smith, who resigned at the weekend. "You never say never, because you don't know what will happen in the future, but I'm contracted with both Wasps and Wales until 2011," Edwards said.

Bradford are confident that their signing of scrum-half Matt Orford will go through despite threats of legal action from another Australian player, Chris Walker, who claims that the Bulls reneged on a deal with him in order to buy Orford.
