Oldham have announced the signing of Wakefield Trinity centre Jack Croft on a season-long loan.
In 2020, he played two games on dual-registration for the Roughyeds, before the season was voided as a result of the global pandemic.
At Trinity, he has made 10 appearances since making his debut against St Helens in the Challenge Cup in 2019.
Reacting to the news, he said: “I’m really looking forward to getting some game time and playing again alongside the Oldham boys, many of whom I know from last time I was there.
“I see my role as trying to help Roughyeds to get some more league points, hopefully starting with Halifax on Saturday.
“I was very happy at Oldham last time I was there, but I had the benefit of having their great fans behind me then and this time we’ll be playing without fans, at least to start with, and that will seem very strange and different.”
Head Coach Matt Diskin added: “We have been communicating with Wakefield for several weeks. He’s a quality young player; a big, fine lad who has a big future ahead of him.
“Because he’s been with us before he knows our structures and our way of doing things and that’s a big plus, too.
“I’m sure he’s got a big future ahead of him in Super League, but what he needs right now is game time and we can provide him with that.”
