Burke goes on loan to Sheffield

Warrington youngster Jordan Burke has joined Championship side Sheffield on an initial one month’s loan.

Burke, 22, will begin training with the Eagles tonight (Friday), and could make his debut against Keighley on Sunday.

He can play at full-back, centre and half-back, and was a member of the Warrington first-team squad that travelled to Australia in pre-season.

Eagles Head Coach Mark Aston said: “I’m pleased we’ve been able to bring Jordan into the club. As a player he has great vision and class and he will fit in well here.

“He’s a young back with heaps of potential and I think it’s just a matter of time before he makes the grade in Super League.

“Players need to compete and fight for their place in the squad and Jordan certainly gives us more options in the backs.

“He has the right attitude and work ethic, which is important, and I might give him a chance this Sunday against Keighley.”
