The RFL has charged Catalans’ Kenny Edwards following allegations that he incited the crowd amid trouble at the end of Saturday’s clash with Warrington.

Wire’s Chris Hill can be heard on the referee’s microphone accusing Edwards of goading supporters behind the posts, as violence escalated in the stands.

The governing body confirmed yesterday the details of disciplinary sanctions against seven players involved in violent scenes on the field.

But Edwards is the only player to be implicated in the off-field issues.

In a statement, the RFL confirmed: “The Match Review Panel (MRP) has already considered allegations relating to the on-field actions of several players during the game and has formally charged Catalans Dragons’ Kenny Edwards for allegedly inciting the crowd during the off-field events.

“This matter will be considered by an independent RFL Tribunal at a hearing taking place this evening (Tuesday 6 August).”
