Domestic career[edit]

Edwards played for the dominating Canterbury provincial side of the early 1990s alongside such talent as Quentin Pongia, Mike Dorreen, Whetu Taewa and coach Frank Endacott. This side continued its success as the Canterbury Cardinals in the 1994 Lion Red Cup. In 1993 he was selected for the New Zealand Kiwis tour of Britain and France.

Edwards spent the New Zealand off-season in England, playing for the Rochdale Hornets from 1988/89 to 1990/91. He then played for the Oldham Bears during the 1991/92 season.[1]

Auckland Warriors[edit]

In 1995 he joined the new Auckland Warriors franchise in the Australian Rugby League. He played fourteen matches for the new club but was not re-signed for 1996. He also forced his way back into the Kiwis in 1995, being an unused substitution in the test against France and playing against Australia. Injury however stopped him making the 1995 Rugby League World Cup squad.

He was to join the Hunter Mariners in 1996 however the a court ruling during the Super League war stopped the launch of the club until 1997.[2]
