Tate, 19, made his Super League debut in the 2020 season against Leeds, and can feature at full-back, wing or centre. He scored his first Super League try in the club’s 22-32 loss to Huddersfield Giants.

Whur, 19, features at prop and impressed in the club’s academy, earning a professional contract with the Super League club.

Rochdale currently sit fifth in the Betfred League 1 table, recently on a run of three wins against North Wales Crusaders, Skolars and West Wales Raiders respectively.

Hull KR youngster Mikey Lewis recently returned to York City Knights on loan and featured in the 1895 Cup final at Wembley, falling to a 41-34 defeat to Featherstone Rovers.

The 20-year-old linked up with the Knights earlier this season, scoring three tries in four appearances for the club.

Outside-back Will Dagger also joined Featherstone on loan from the Robins in June.

Tony Smith added Dewsbury forward Tom Garratt to his squad for the 2022 season, who joins for an undisclosed fee on a two-year deal. Back-rower Frankie Halton will also make the jump to Super League with Hull KR, after signing from the 2022 campaign from Featherstone, and previously featuring for Swinton Lions.

Scotland international and St Helens full-back Lachlan Coote will also join the Craven Park side from 2022, while they have also been linked with Warrington half-back Blake Austin.
