Luke George extends his loan agreement with Hull KR
Hull Kingston Rovers have extended their loan agreement with the Huddersfield Giants for the services of Luke George.
The initial one-month period has expired but the new deal means George is available to play in the Magic event at the weekend.
Giants managing director Richard Thewlis said: "Luke is in the team across on Humberside and they must be happy with him as they wished to retain him for longer which is great news."
"RFL regulations mean that after a month the arrangement can be revoked by either party at a days notice so the natural thing is to continue as we are.
"Clubs situations can change quickly as we all know injury and form wise and as we are relatively healthy in the outside backs I think it's another win-win for all concerned that he remains representing the Robins for now.
"In particular the chance to play in the Humberside derby at the showpiece Magic event is something that I am sure Luke will relish and for many of our supporters who have bought weekend tickets it will be a chance to support him live at what I am certain will be a memorable weekend."
Meanwhile, the Giants have confirmed that second rower Jacob Fairbank, who is on loan to Bradford, is free to play against his parent club at the Etihad Stadium on
