York swoop for Wakefield prop

York City Knights have completed the signing of prop Jordan Baldwinson on a one-month loan from Wakefield.

The former Leeds forward has dropped down the pecking order at Trinity but will have a chance to impress in the Championship.

“I’m really looking forward getting started at York,” Baldwinson said.

“With the lads there, there is a huge buzz about the Knights this year. Looking at what they have done already this season and where they stand in the table is a credit to the boys and their coach.

“I’m really hoping I can add to what is already a good squad and help secure more wins with some real tough fixtures ahead.”

Knights head coach James Ford said: “Jordan will add size and physicality to our forward pack. He’s a player we tried signing in the off-season and I’m delighted the club and specifically, squadbuilder have backed us on this acquisition.

“I’m confident that if Jordan buys into our culture and attitude towards hard work he’ll kick on and fulfil his potential.”
