London Broncos Rugby League has signed prop forward Jonny Walker on loan from fellow Kingstone Press Championship side Leigh Centurions until the end of the 2015 season.
Walker, who has been named in Andrew Henderson’s 19-man squad face Bradford Bulls on Sunday, has recently completed a loan spell at Whitehaven.
Head coach Andrew Henderson said: “Jonny will add size, aggression and experience to the pack. Even though he’s only 24-years-old he’s had plenty of Super League and Championship experience. Jonny sees this as a great opportunity and I’m sure he’ll grab it with both hands. I’m really excited to have Jonny on board and his addition gives us much needed cover in the front row.
Leigh Centurions head of rugby Derek Beaumont said: “With London being a full-time club it is less disruptive for him as he will be training continually rather than training at our club full-time and then spending part of the week at a part-time club.
“We will continue to monitor his progress during his time at London. As part of the agreement Jonny will not be able to feature in any game against Leigh Centurions during the loan period. This is always standard procedure when players go on loan to other clubs that they don’t play against their parent club.”
