Williams extends Tigers stay
Warrington Wolves have extended the loan spell of winger Rhys Williams at Castleford Tigers and allowed academy back-row forward James Laithwaite to join Hull KR for a month.
Williams initially joined the Tigers for a month but will now make his fifth appearance for them in tomorrow’s Stobart Super League match at Widnes Vikings.
The 20-year-old Laithwaite has returned from a dual registration at Championship club Leigh and is hoping to make his Super League debut for Hull KR.
“This will give James a step up into the Stobart Super League, providing him with an opportunity to build up some professional game-time in the top-flight competition,” said a Warrington spokesman.
Another Warrington Under-20s player, centre James Mendeika, will take Laithwaite’s place at Leigh on dual registration terms.
