Swinton Lions have announced the signing of hooker Kieran Rush from Huddersfield on an initial loan agreement.
The 19-year-old, who can also play in the halves, is a product of the Giants’ academy and has been with the club since signing on as a scholar.
He has since progressed through the academy, and earned his first professional contract in September last year.
Rush is expected to be in the squad for Sunday’s League 1 clash against unbeaten Keighley at Cougar Park. The Lions will be hoping to bounce back after losing their unbeaten start against North Wales over the Easter weekend.
Speaking to the club website about the move, Rush said: “I’m really happy to be at Swinton Lions, and I can’t wait to get some game time and show what I can do.”
Lions Head Coach Allan Coleman added: “It’s great to be able to welcome Kieran to Swinton. We’ve kept contact with Huddersfield over recent weeks, and I’d like to thank Giants’ Head Coach Ian Watson, and CEO Andy Kelly, for their support which has enabled this agreement to take place.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing Kieran in a Swinton shirt.”
