Loan news: Eaves and Rizzelli on the move

Josh Eaves has joined Wakefield Trinity, whilst Nico Rizzelli has linked up with Championship side Swinton Lions on loan deals.

The moves are on initial two-week loans with both then reviewed on a week-by-week basis.

Josh Simm has also returned to the Club after his loan period at Leigh Centurions ended. He made one appearance against Castleford in a 52-16 defeat.

Eaves also recently returned from a short spell at the Centurions, but now gets an opportunity at Wakefield. The 23-year-old hooker scored in his only appearance in 2020 in a narrow defeat to Salford and has made a total of 3 appearances in the Red V.

Rizzelli, 21, is a centre signed from Rochdale Mayfield who has made the first team squad despite playing only one season at U19 level. He is a powerful runner with a great future and made his debut in defeat to Salford in 2020.

Saints Head Coach Kristian Woolf said: “It’s a great opportunity for both players to go and play some regular rugby league. It’s difficult circumstances for those guys because if they are not in our side, we can’t give them game time. It’s a chance for both to continue their development and its a real win for all clubs.”

The Club will continue to monitor both players on a week-by-week basis to ensure they receive regular game time.
