Hunslet sign Leeds youngster Jordan-Roberts on loan

Hunslet have signed young Leeds Rhinos forward Josh Jordan-Roberts on a one-month loan deal.

The 19-year-old has played two games for the Rhinos and made seven appearances on loan at Bradford Bulls last year.

Gary Thornton, Hunslet coach, said: “I don’t know too much about him, but I have seen him play a few times and Leeds think quite highly of him.

“They want him to get some game time and from what I’ve heard he has a promising future.

“He’s looking forward to coming into our group and he has some versatility; he can play back-row or front-row.

“He is tough with good skills and he has a good attitude. He came to our game [on Sunday] and can’t wait to get stuck in and start playing.”
