When Kenny Edwards received a ten-match ban for poking the backside of an opponent during a Super League game in 2021, it was probably one of the most popular news stories of the year.
Edwards, 32, joined the Tigers for a one-year loan for the 2022 Super League season, but failed to play towards the back end of the year after receiving a ten-match ban for sticking a finger up the bum of Catalans Dragons’ Sam Kasiano.
The New Zealand second-rower revealed in an exclusive interview with Serious About Rugby League last year that: “Me and Sam (Kasiano) are best friends and they have blown a joke between two mates way out of proportion.
The New Zealander also suffered with a serious knee injury, with an operation hoping to clear it up in time for pre-season.
Now, though, he is fighting fit and looked very much the part as the Tigers put Championship promotion hopefuls York City Knights to the sword in a 32-10 victory yesterday.
And, Edwards was certainly happy to get back out there on the field following a tough few months.
Edwards posted: “First game in nearly 8 months😮💨
“Moral of story don’t poke bums👍🏼”
