Luke George: Joining Hull KR on a month's loan
Huddersfield Giants outside back Luke George has joined Hull KR on a month's loan.
The 25-year-old former Wakefield player has made five appearances this season for the Super League club, scoring two tries.
He will be eligible for Rovers for their match against champions Leeds Rhinos this weekend.
Giants managing director Richard Thewlis told www.giantsrl.com: "There was an enquiry through the coaching staff and with Paul (Anderson - head coach) currently going with Jermaine (McGillvary) and Aaron (Murphy) in the majority of games on the wings and Matthew Dawson always pushing for an opportunity, the chance for Luke to get some game time is very advantageous.
"We also have young Ben Blackmore as cover who is working hard in training and getting experience at Doncaster and I guess you could say that Luke is in a similar scenario to Dale Ferguson when he did a loan spell at Hull KR earlier in the year and that was something that benefitted all three parties as we hope this will too."
