Castleford confirm loan signing of Kenny Edwards

Castleford have added Huddersfield forward Kenny Edwards to their squad for 2022 on a one-year loan deal.

Edwards, 32, will link up with new coach Lee Radford, moving across Yorkshire from Huddersfield.

Incoming Castleford coach Radford said: “I am so excited about working with Kenny, I’ve actually tried signing him on a couple of occasions, so to get to work with him now, I’m buzzing.

“I love the energy he brings on a matchday, he always plays on the edge of right and wrong and has a fantastic skillset for a back-row player.

“I am sure Kenny will be a great addition to an already strong left edge.”

Edwards said: “I can’t wait, and it is amazing for me. I spoke to Radders back earlier in the year, and to finally get it done, I am over the moon.

“I have spoken to players who have played under Radders and I know the way he likes to coach. Speaking to Radders a little earlier on in the year and when he was pitching for me to come to Castleford, everything he said pretty much summed me up as a player.

“He has been able to win a couple of Challenge Cups with Hull FC and to be able to start working with him, I can’t wait.”
