Huddersfield Giants forward Adam Walne has joined Championship side Leigh Centurions on loan until the end of the current season.
The 27-year-old has made just four appearances for the Giants this season and will take squad number 32 at Leigh.
Head coach Kieron Purtill told the club’s official website: “Adam is a fantastic professional with a lot of experience. The reports I have had about his training, attitude and his willingness to work for and help out his team mates has been first-class.
“I am looking forward to him bringing this to our group on a daily basis and to him being a leader with his no nonsense approach to games as we push for a top four place in the Betfred Championship.”
Walne made his professional debut in 2012 with Salford Red Devils, and went on to make 74 appearances for the side before joining the Giants on a three-year deal in 2017.
The prop forward will not be eligible to face his parent club if the two sides are to meet in the Middle 8s.
