Leigh half-back Lewis Foster has joined Championship side London Broncos on a one-month loan deal.
Foster, 23, can also play at hooker and has already turned out for Sheffield and Whitehaven this season on dual-registration.
Broncos Head Coach, Andrew Henderson, said: “These last few weeks haven’t been great for us on the injury front – we’ve had at least seven of our top 24 players out, and going into Rochdale we had eight players unavailable through injury.
“With a tough Easter period coming up I thought it wise to make some enquiries about suitable players that would add value to the squad, and if we continue to pick up injuries I may need to bring in another one or two if possible to keep things fresh and competitive within the group.”
Foster is a product of the St Helens academy and has played 10 games for Leigh since making his debut in May 2014.
Centurions Head Coach Neil Jukes said: “This is a good move for Lewis. It will test him at a top flight Championship club and gives him a good opportunity to play and train in a good, full-time environment.
“It’s a good opportunity for Lewis to catapult his own brand out there and show what he can do at that level.
“Unfortunately we haven’t had the chance to give him game-time this season and as with all our players we shall be monitoring his performances with the Broncos.
“Hopefully he will get plenty of opportunities and with Hendo being a nine in his playing days it will give him a different slant on things. Being away from home will be good for him and it’s now up to Lewis to show what he can do.”
