York have taken ex-Hull KR prop Harry Bardle on trial terms.
The 19-year-old came through City of Hull academy before making two Super League appearances for the Robins in 2019.
Bardle was released by Hull KR at the end of last season and took up a job away from rugby league – but he has now joined the Knights on trial.
Knights coach James Ford said: “Harry is a promising, young front-rower who has already had a taste of Super League.
“We have given him an opportunity to impress whilst both parties have a closer look to ensure they have the best chance of making the correct decision.
“Harry has settled in well and is displaying a positive approach to his development.
“As with any player, attitude, coach-ability and commitment are key, and I’m looking forward to seeing him stake his claim for a contract.”
