Oakes joins Dewsbury on loan from Rovers

Posted by

Dewsbury Rams have signed fullback Will Oakes from Hull KR on a season long loan.

Oakes spent time on loan at York City Knights last season, and helped them to a third place finish in the Championship.

On signing the speedy winger, head coach Lee Greenwood told the Dewsbury club website: “I’m really pleased we’ve managed to secure Will for the season, he is a quality player who scores tries.

“He has done well at York on loan and has held his own at Super League level when called upon by Hull KR. This move gives him the chance to get a full season of playing pretty much every week, something he hasn’t managed to do since coming out of academy rugby.”

Rovers Head Coach Tony Smith added his own comments on the Rovers club website, saying: “This is a great chance for Will to establish himself and gain regular first-team rugby under his belt.

“It is great that he is spending 2020 at Dewsbury, who are our partnership club. I have had some good meetings with Lee (Greenwood) who is looking forward to working with Will and will give him opportunities next year.”
