Rugby League news LIVE: Kenny Edwards hit with huge ban, kick-off times change due to Euros …

All the major stories and transfer news from Super League and the NRL Hello and welcome along to today's live rugby league blog where we will be bringing you all the latest news and rumours all day long. You may have heard that football is coming home but there is a full round of Super League to look forward to as well this weekend. The action starts on Friday night as Leeds Rhinos welcome Catalans Dragons to Headingley and Wakefield Trinity host St Helens. On Sunday, Hull FC take on Leigh Centurions, Hull KR face Warrington Wolves, Wigan Warriors bid to end their dismal run against Huddersfield Giants and Castleford Tigers warm up for Wembley at home to Salford Red Devils. We'll bring you the top stories from across the sport throughout the day, including breaking news and score updates from the NRL as Manly Sea Eagles take on Canberra Raiders. Wakefield Trinity boss Chris Chester has revealed the club have been struggling with Covid issues this week but their game with St Helens will go ahead as planned. “We had to stand one player down for 10 days with a positive and sent another player home this morning so there’s some lingering around. “We’re down to 17 tomorrow. We named 19 but there’s two guys in there, one who’s down injured and one who’s had to be stood down.” Leeds prop Mikolaj Oledzki says he does not want a break as he prepares to play his fifth game in 15 days when the resurgent Rhinos take on Super League leaders Catalans Dragons at Headingley on Friday. The Gdansk-born forward made his England debut against the Combined Nations All Stars just under a fortnight ago and since then has helped the Rhinos to consecutive victories over Salford, Leigh and Warrington, all in the space of 11 days. There is little chance for the 22-year-old to rest due to the relentless nature of the fixture list but Oledzki is determined to keep playing. “I try not to think about it, it’s one of those things you just have to get on with,” he said. “I don’t want a break, I’ll play as many games as I have to. Whatever it takes, it doesn’t bother me. “We all want to climb up the ladder and start competing for the top-four spots.” The Betfred League 1 fixture between Workington Town and Coventry Bears which was scheduled for this Sunday (July 11) has been postponed, following a number of positive Covid-19 tests in the Workington squad. With five confirmed positive tests and an additional three players required to isolate as close contacts, Workington meet the threshold of seven senior players unavailable as a result of Covid-19 for a match to be postponed. The sport’s Multiple Cases Group have advised that the club should suspend training until at least Sunday, with further testing required before a resumption. This is the second League 1 match to be postponed this season, after Coventry’s home game against Keighley Cougars scheduled for June 20 was postponed following Covid-19 issues at Keighley. That game has been rescheduled for next Friday (July 16), and the RFL will work with the Workington and Coventry clubs on a possible rearrangement of their fixture – although as things stand, there are no available weekend dates between now and the end of the regular season in September, and it was agreed before the start of the season that the Betfred League 1 table will be determined by win points percentage to allow for the possibility of not all fixtures being fulfilled. Wakefield coach Chris Chester says he has just 17 players available for Friday’s Super League home game against champions St Helens after further Covid-19 disruption. With 10 players on the injury list, Chester was only able to name a 19-man squad and he revealed at his press conference on Thursday that one of them is injured and the other has been forced to stand down due to Covid protocols. “We’ve had major disruption,” he said. “We’ve had to stand one player down for 10 days after a positive test and we’ve sent another player home this morning. “So there’s obviously something lingering around, the Under-19s have had some issues as well. “We can fulfil our fixtures. We’re literally down to 17 players for tomorrow’s game. I know I named 19 but one of them is injured and one has had to be stood down. “But we were proud of what we did last year in fulfilling all our fixtures and we’re certainly going to try and do that again this year.” Wigan made an early call to move their home game against Huddersfield from 6.30pm to 3pm due to the Euro 2020 final and England's dramatic win over Denmark has prompted Halifax and Whitehaven to follow suit. There will be a few sore heads this morning I imagine! Here's a story that almost got lost last night… Huddersfield forward Kenny Edwards has been banned for 10 matches for putting his finger up the bottom of an opponent. The New Zealander was put on report by referee Ben Thaler during the Giants’ 50-12 home defeat by Catalans last Thursday following a complaint brought by Dragons prop Sam Kasiano. Edwards was charged by the Rugby Football League’s match review panel with a Grade F offence, the most serious available to it, for “other contrary behaviour” and referred to an independent tribunal, which handed out the punishment following a hearing on Wednesday evening. Edwards, a former Catalans player, pleaded guilty to the charge and was also handed a £500 fine. Catalans back rower Joel Tomkins was suspended for eight games for a similar offence last year while wingers Tommy Makinson (St Helens) and Tom LIneham (Warrington) were suspended for five and eight matches respectively for grabbing opponents’ testicles. Kasiano, meanwhile, successfully challenged a one-game penalty notice after being charged with a Grade B offence of dangerous contact during the game against Huddersfield. Kasiano pleaded guilty to the offence but the tribunal agreed the charge should be downgraded and he avoided a ban, freeing him to play against Leeds on Friday.
