Kenny Edwards cleared of inciting crowd in Catalans-Warrington affair

Kenny Edwards has been cleared of inciting the crowd in the Catalans-Warrington game on Saturday.

The 29-year-old faced a tribunal for allegedly goading supporters of the Dragons and Wolves as fighting broke out in the terraces at the Stade Gilbert Brutus on Saturday evening.

Elsewhere, Catalans forward Mika Simon and centre Brayden Wiliame will be available for selection against Leeds on Friday night after successfully appealing their bans.

Simon was charged with a Grade A head butt but successfully pleaded not guilty, while Wiliame’s Grade B dangerous throw was downgraded to grade A and the Fiji international receives no suspension.

However, hooker Micky McIlorum failed with his appeal against his one-match ban and will now be out for the next two games. The Ireland international was fined £500 and a £500 forfeit of penalty notice challenge.

Sam Tomkins’ three-match ban for punching Jake Mamo still stands.

Tomkins had challenged the grading of Grade C punching, however, the tribunal felt the grading was correct and he has been handed a three-match ban, £500 fine and a £500 loss of deposit for challenging the grading.

The Dragons face Leeds at Emerald Headingley on Friday night, 7:45pm kick-off.
