Barrow have signed Jonny Pownall from Toronto on a one-month loan deal.

The 26-year-old winger or full-back joins the Raiders at a time when they are struggling for numbers in the back line.

Pownall started his career with hometown club Leigh Centurions in 2011 and spent six years at the club, scoring 58 tries in 92 games.

He moved to the Wolfpack ahead of the 2017 season and has scored 30 tries in 32 appearances for the Canadian outfit.

Pownall made his Raiders debut in their 52-4 defeat at Featherstone Rovers on Sunday afternoon.
