Edwards available for semi-final despite red card, Bird given dangerous contact charge

Catalans Dragons’ Kenny Edwards will be available for his side’s Challenge Cup semi-final against St Helens despite being sent off against Wigan for a high tackle.

Many saw the red card shown to Edwards as a harsh decision and the match review panel ultimately agree.

Greg Bird, however, will miss up to five games after being given a Grade D dangerous contact charge after his challenge on Gabe Hamlin.

Bird wrapped his legs around Hamlin as he was going to ground, as you can see from the video below.

Bird’s charge will go to tribunal.
