Hunslet secure Sheffield forward Rory Dixon on loan

Hunslet have signed Sheffield prop Rory Dixon on an initial one-month loan deal.

Dixon, 21, has made five appearances for the Eagles this season, after joining from Hemel Stags.

Coach Mark Aston said: “This is a good move for Rory, he’s in an important stage of his development and this will secure him increased game time which will aid that development.

“He had a tough pre-season with injury so he was a bit behind the rest of the lads but he’s a hard worker, he got his head down and pushed his way into the squad.

“Competition for places is strong at the moment so his game time may have been reduced in the next month so we are pleased we can secure this move.”
