Greenwood returns to Warriors

Leeds Rhinos Director of Rugby Kevin Sinfield has confirmed that England international forward Joe Greenwood has returned to Wigan Warriors after his two month loan agreement at Emerald Headingley expired.

Greenwood, who has previously played at St Helens and Gold Coast Titans, joined the Rhinos on loan back at the end of February but did not make an appearance for the club after the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Commenting on the news, Sinfield said, “Firstly, I would like to wish Joe all the best for the remainder of the season with Wigan. He has been the ultimate professional throughout his time at the Rhinos especially during an unprecedented period of change. He has been a popular member of our group. Unfortunately things have not worked out and we have had to make a financial decision whilst we are on lockdown however he leaves with our very best wishes.”
