St Helens young hooker Aaron Smith has joined Featherstone on a one-month loan deal.
The 21-year-old is yet to make his first team debut for Super League leaders Saints but has played in Super League this year after spending a month on loan at Hull Kingston Rovers.
A former England Academy international, Smith has also spent time on loan at York City Knights this season.
Rovers coach John Duffy said: “We have been looking to strengthen the squad for a number of weeks and we are low on pivots at the moment.
“Aaron has spent some time with Hull KR this season and comes with a great reputation.
“He is a dynamic player with plenty of pace and will fit in very well here.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mike Rush and Paul Wellens for allowing the deal to come together so quickly.”
