Jordan-Roberts joins Hunslet on loan
Hunslet RLFC have today signed Leeds Rhinos forward Josh Jordan-Roberts on a month’s loan. The 19-year-old Oulton Raiders product has made two substitute appearances for Rhinos and played seven times on loan with Bradford Bulls last year.
Hunslet coach Gary Thornton said: “I don’t know too much about him, but I have seen him play a few times and Leeds think quite highly of him.
“They want him to get some game time and from what I’ve heard he has a promising future.
“He’s looking forward to coming into our group and he has some versatility; he can play back-row or front-row.
“He is tough with good skills and he has a good attitude. He came to our game [on Sunday] and can’t wait to get stuck in and start playing.”
Hunslet made it two wins from two in Betfred League One with a 26-10 home victory over North Wales Crusaders, but have some injury concerns in the pack.
