Huddersfield have sent duo Ronan Michael and George Roby out on loan.

Michael, who made his Super League debut for the Giants against Wigan in 2020, has joined Championship side Whitehaven on a two-week loan deal.

He said: “I’m really looking forward to my loan spell at Whitehaven and I’m grateful for the opportunity. The Championship this year is a very competitive one. I’m hoping to gain some game playing experience during the loan. Hopefully I can get out there soon with the boys and show what I’m about and learn along the way.”

Roby, 18, joined the John Smith’s Stadum side on a two-year deal ahead of the 2021 season, and will join League 1’s North Wales Crusaders on a season-long loan.

Crusaders head coach Anthony Murray said: “This is a really positive deal for us and George will provide further competition at nine.

“He’s been part of some good systems at Super League clubs and has been training full-time with Huddersfield this season.

“George is a highly-rated, young player and we’re really excited to see what he can do in a Crusaders shirt in 2021.

“League 1 will no doubt provide George with a good taste of senior rugby league and an opportunity to develop his game, like we’ve done with players who’ve spent time with us on loan previously.”
