Wigan hooker Logan Tomkins has joined Salford on a one month loan.
Tomkins, 21, has made three starts for the Warriors this season, and is eligible to play against his parent club when the two sides meet on May 22, should his loan be extended.
He will not, however, be allowed to become cup tied by playing in the Red Devils’ Challenge Cup tie against Widnes at the end of the month.
Wigan Rugby Manager Kris Radlinski said: “We are comfortable for Logan to join Salford on a one month loan deal and know he will be looked after by their Coaching Staff. This agreement will allow Logan the opportunity to get some important game time in Super League under his belt in the next four weeks.
“With the versatility of George Williams and Sam Powell set to return shortly after injury we feel we have cover in the hooking and half back role.
“Logan will also benefit from the experience of playing some first team rugby elsewhere in a different environment for a short while.”
Tomkins started Wigan’s games against Hull KR, Warrington and Catalan, and has made a total of five appearances in 2014.
