Known as somewhat of a larrikin during his playing days and the inventor of the ‘Kenny Cramp’, Kenny Edwards will make his return to Australia after several years in England. 

Previously, Edwards had a stint at the Parramatta Eels that saw him play in 70 NRL games before moving to England where he played for Huddersfield and Castleford.

Edwards admits that upon his return to Australia with the Cutters, that he has some fire in the belly.

“I’ve got a bit of a skip in my step for the first time in a while,” Edwards said.

“I feel excited about coming to work, I feel excited about playing, knowing that I’ll be rubbing shoulders with kids that are probably on their journey to the NRL.”

Someone who is no stranger to Edwards is Kim Williams, with the current Head of Football of the Cutters previously working at Huddersfield in their academy during Edwards’ time there.

“He’s very proactive in wanting to help out at all levels of the club,” Williams said.
“He approached me about getting involved and helping out the young guys in a mentoring role … I find that an outstanding quality from a senior player to put himself in that position.”
Although Edwards has the veteran experience to mentor the next generation, he is still keen to prove himself once again.
“I want to earn my spot here and earn the respect of the playing group and the coaches,” Edwards said.
“I have that winning hunger. I’m a sore loser, I hate losing, I hate losing to my kids at anything.”
