Baldwinson joins Leigh on loan from Wakefield

Baldwinson joins Leigh on loan from Wakefield

Wakefield Trinity forward Jordan Baldwinson has joined Betfred Championship club Leigh Centurions on a month’s loan and could make his debut against his old team Featherstone Rovers on Saturday.

The 23-year-old played for Featherstone in between two spells with Leeds Rhinos and joined Wakefield on a two-year contract at the end of last season.

He has made four substitute appearances so far for Trinity but remains part of coach Chris Chester’s long-term plans.

Chester said: “It is a great opportunity for Jordan to go out on loan at Leigh.

“He is very much part of our plans moving forward and game time at Leigh will give him an opportunity to get match fit in time for our Super 8s campaign later in the year.”

Leigh head of rugby Keiron Cunningham said: “Jordan is a proven Championship player and it’s really good to get him on board.

“Hopefully we will give him what he needs which is regular game time and the loan will benefit all parties.”
