LEE Gaskell has joined Salford City Reds on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old half back has made 43 appearances for the Club since making his debut in 2010 but has found chances limited in 2013.
Coming the other way is Stuart Howarth, 23, who is a hooker / loose forward.
He was the only Reds player to feature in every one of the club’s 29 matches last season, mostly as a hooker but as scrum half towards the latter end of the campaign.
Saints Head Coach Nathan Brown said: “At this stage of his career Lee needs to be playing more regularly and with chances limited at present it made sense for him to go out on loan.
“We’re looking forward to watching him develop and I’m sure he will do a good job for Salford.
“Stuart has shown in his time at Salford that he is a capable and experienced player and will prove more than adequate cover for a multitude of positions.
“He will be put straight into the Good Friday squad and we are confident he will do well.”
