Championship leaders Leigh Centurions have snapped up prop forward Jonny Walker following his release by Hull KR.

The former Huddersfield and Castleford forward, 23, whose twin brother Adam is still with the Robins, has joined the Centurions with immediate effect on a contract until the end of 2015.

Leigh are currently 12 points ahead of second placed Featherstone after 18 games played.

The Bradford-born player made 48 Super League appearances and represented Scotland in 2012 but had to pull out of their 2013 World Cup squad due to a knee injury.

Leigh coach Paul Rowley said: "When we heard that Jonny had become available we quickly did some research and all we got back was positive.

"Jonny was someone I was aware of and to get someone of his ability and potential is a massive signing for our club going forward. I am looking forward to working with him and am sure he will quickly settle in at Leigh and enjoy his time here."
