Giant George on loan at Hull KR

Huddersfield Giants 25 year old outside back Luke George has joined Hull Kingston Rovers on a month’s loan.

The former Wakefield player has made five appearances so far in the 2013 season scoring two tries to date.  

Giants Managing Director Richard Thewlis told how the move came about:

“There was an enquiry through the coaching staff and with Paul currently going with Jermaine (McGillvary) and Aaron (Murphy) in the majority of games on the wings and Matthew Dawson always pushing for an opportunity, the chance for Luke to get some game time is very advantageous.” 

“We also have young Ben Blackmore as cover who is working hard in training and getting experience at Doncaster and I guess you could say that Luke is in a similar scenario to Dale Ferguson when he did a loan spell at Hull KR earlier in the year and that was something that benefitted all three parties as we hope this will too.”

The loan begins with immediate effect, making him eligible for selection by Rovers at the weekend against Leeds Rhinos
