Quartet Oli Field, MacKenzie Turner, Joe Hird and Joe Gibbons have joined the League 1 side on a two-week loan. All four will make their debuts on Sunday against Rochdale Hornets, live on Our League.

With no reserve game this weekend or next weekend for the Rhinos, the four will gain experience with Cornwall RLFC. They will also be available for the club’s trip to Hunslet next week.

For a second successive home match, Cornwall have sold their seated tickets for their home clash with Hornets. 

The sport’s newest side, Cornwall continue to search for their first win of the season heading into their fifth game of the campaign. Their first game in League 1 came against Oldham, falling to a 48-22 defeat to Stuart Littler’s side. They have also faced North Wales Crusaders, Doncaster and Midlands Hurricanes.

Earlier this season, the League 1 newcomers entered a dual-registration partnership with Championship side Bradford Bulls for this season.

Cornwall RLFC forward Paul Bolger on Ireland dream

Cornwall forward Paul Bolger has said it would be his dream to represent Ireland at a senior level in his career.

Bolger was born in Ireland, and played rugby league for Dublin City Exiles and Longhorns, before making the move over to the UK to study at the University of Gloucestershire.

Before making the move, he did play for his country at Under-19s and Students level. But he has yet to make a senior cap.

Bolger says he will stop at nothing to get a senior appearance for his country.

He told Love Rugby League: “For me, it’s all about playing the best footy I can. And then hopefully turning the heads of the Ireland coaches and working my way into that Ireland senior setup.

“I have Students, Under-19s appearances and Ireland clubs. But that elusive green senior jersey, the senior cap, that’s what I want. So I’ll stop at nothing to get there.”
