Hull KR sign Luis Johnson on loan

Hull KR have signed young back-rower Luis Johnson on a one-month loan deal from Warrington.

The 20-year-old made his Super League debut against Wigan last season, and has also spent time on loan and dual-registration at Widnes and Rochdale respectively.

A former England Academy international, Johnson will spend the next month at the KCOM Craven Park.

Rovers chief executive Mike Smith said: “I’d like to thank everyone involved at Warrington for their part in allowing Luis to join us.

“Head coach Tony Smith is looking forward to working with Luis and he will add extra power to our pack for the next month.”
