Rams loan Johnson to Hunslet

Dewsbury prop Zach Johnson has joined the Hunslet Hawks on a one-month loan.

Johnson played in the Championship for Swinton in 2014 after signing from Shaw Cross and toured Australia with Barla in 2013. He joined up with the Rams ahead of the 2015 season.

“We were looking a little light for middle units as we have just released Jack Pickles due to work commitments and it looks like Jay Leary is also struggling with the same issue added to the fact Michael Haley went to hospital at half time of Sundays game, we’re hoping it’s just precautionary with Michael as he took a whack to the face in a heavy collision,” Hunslet Director of Rugby Darren Williams explained.

“Zach will add plenty of size and will be a really useful recruit as we kick off League 1 at Rochdale this weekend.

“Mark Sawyer and Glenn Morrison have been very accommodating in allowing Zach to join us and the move will be of huge benefit to all parties as Zach needs some game time and Dewsbury need him playing regularly at a good standard.”
