Leigh sign Charnock on loan from Saints

Leigh have revealed that Lewis Charnock has joined the club on a month’s loan from St Helens.

The utility pivot is 21 years old, and has represented the England Acadmy side. He made his Super League debut in 2013, and has played six first-team games for Saints.

He also played eight games for Rochdale Hornets on dual registration last season in League 1.

“I’d like to thank Mike Rush, Keiron Cunningham, Tommy Martyn and everyone at St Helens for their assistance in a deal that should hopefully benefit all parties,” said Leigh head coach Neil Jukes.

“Lewis comes from a good culture and I look forward to working with him. He will add strength in depth across the board and will also enhance our kicking game.

“He comes highly recommended and it’s important that people we recruit to our club are good people. Whether you are 21 or 31 if you have a good attitude that’s important.

“Everyone I’ve spoken to says his attitude is outstanding. The technical bits and the understanding of our own structure we can work on.

“Lewis is versatile and adds genuine competition and depth to our squad at a crucial time.”
