CATALANS Dragons forward Kenny Edwards has been cleared of a charge of crowd incitement in Saturday's fixture against Warrington Wolves.

And two of their players have had bans overturned on appeal.

The Super League match at the Stade Gilbert Brutus in Perpignan was marred by fighting on and off the pitch.

Edwards was seen waving his arms towards the crowd at one point, which incensed Wire co-captain Chris Hill, and the New Zealander was restrained by his club captain Remi Casty.

He was charged by the Rugby Football League's match review panel with "other contrary behaviour" but denied the offence when he appeared in front of an independent tribunal in Leeds and was found not guilty.

Referee James Child brandished two red cards and four yellows, and the match review panel handed out suspensions to Catalans quartet Sam Tomkins, Micky McIlorum, Brayden Wiliame and Mickael Simon as well as Warrington winger Tom Lineham.

Les Catalans had mixed fortunes when they took the cases to appeal.

Simon and Wiliame had their one-match bans overturned but McIlorum had his suspension for a high tackle increased from one to two games, while Sam Tomkins' three-match ban for punching remains.

Edwards, Wiliame and Simon are now all free to play for the Catalans at Leeds on Friday night.

Lineham misses The Wire's clash with Super League leaders St Helens at The Halliwell Jones Stadium on Thursday night but will be available again for the following week's date with Wigan.
