Oldham have announced the signing of young Saints centre Tom Nisbet on an initial two-week loan period.
Nisbet came through the academy system at St Helens, and made his first team debut in last year’s 12-10 defeat by Salford Red Devils.
He has been named in the 21-man-squad on occasion this season, but is yet to make an appearance. Although he did play in Tommy Makinson’s testimonial match, which was lost 25-24 against Leigh Centurions.
Reacting to the news, he said: “I’m excited about joining Oldham with the prospects of playing at senior level in the Championship.
Oldham Chairman Chris Hamilton added: “We have a good relationship with Saints, who have a big production line of young players coming through.
“Tom is in the first-team squad at Saints and waiting for his chance. In the meantime, he can help us out and get some senior rugby at the same time.”
