Drew Darbyshire

York have re-signed half-back Riley Dean on loan from Warrington, with Leigh recalling Jamie Ellis from his loan spell with the City Knights.

Dean enjoyed a spell on loan with York in the Championship earlier this season before returning to parent club Warrington. He scored two tries in three games in his first loan spell with York.

The 19-year-old captained the first ever Ireland Under-16s team and had been called up to Ireland’s senior squad for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup qualifiers.

Meanwhile, Ellis has returned to Leigh following his two-week loan with York.
