After an upturn in form in recent weeks, Catalans Dragons have given their fans some more good news in the form of a new signing – that of former Parramatta forward Kenny Edwards.
Having been granted an immediate release from his Eels contract in recent days, the Perpignan club have moved fast to secure the Australian on a deal until the end of 2019. However, his availability has come shortly after being charged with driving on a suspended licence in his home country. Following that incident, he requested a mutual termination of his deal which has enabled Catalans and their head coach Steve McNamara to swoop.
Speaking of his new signing, the former England boss said “signing a player of Kenny’s ability at this stage of the season is a big boost to our current squad. He is the type of player that will add something different from an attacking perspective and a player who plays with huge enthusiasm and energy. We look forward to welcoming him and his family to the Dragons.” Catalans have, in recent weeks, beaten both Hull FC and Salford Red Devils in Super League as well as York City Knights and Whitehaven and host Leeds Rhinos on Saturday evening.
Edwards himself won’t feature in the match but will be presented to the club’s fans before the match where, should results go their way, they could move into the top eight of the Super League table.
