Joel Edwards

Signed for the second half of the 2019 season, the 30-year-old back row brings experience from 107 first-grade games in the NRL with stints at Canberra Raiders, Newcastle Knights and West Tigers.

A powerful player in both attack and defence, Edwards is known for hard-hitting tackles, strong running and an excellent offloading game.

He was part of the York City Knights team that earned promotion to the Betfred Championship as champions in 2018 and has also played in France’s Elite One Championship with Limoux Grizzlies.

Though primarily a back-rower, Edwards can also fill in at front row and loose forward, bringing vital versatility to complement his skills and experience.
