Leeds extend quartet’s loan with Bradford

Leeds Rhinos have extended the loan deals for Jordan Lilley, Josh Jordan-Roberts, Mikolaj Oledzki and Sam Hallas with Kingstone Press Championship side Bradford Bulls.

Lilley, Jordan-Roberts and Oledzki all featured in the Bulls win against Toulouse on Sunday whilst Hallas is currently recovering from an injury.

Having completed their initial one-month loan, the Rhinos are now able to recall the players if required on a week to week basis.

Rhinos Head Coach Brian McDermott said: “All four young players have a great opportunity to develop their skills during their time at the Bulls.

“Jordan is doing well managing a game and directing the team around the pitch in some tough positions when his side are not always on the front foot.

“For Josh and Mikolaj, this is an opportunity to test themselves against men on a week to week basis and develop as forwards.

“Unfortunately for Sam, he has picked up an ankle injury but it is not long term and he will hopefully be back soon. We are constantly monitoring and reviewing their performances with them and if they are required for the first team we know they are ready to go.

“We will do the right thing by Bradford and make sure we give them as much notice as we can before recalling the players but for now they are learning some great lessons in the Bulls camp and most importantly getting valuable gametime.”
