Hull FC youngster Nick Rawsthorne has joined fellow Super League side Leigh Centurions on a one-month loan deal.

Rawsthorne, who joined the Black and Whites in the off-season from Championship side Halifax, will spend the next month with Neil Jukes’ men.

The 21-year-old winger made his debut against the Centurions last month and went on to make a further two appearances for the Airlie Birds, scoring two tries against Catalans Dragons and kicking two goals in the victory over Super League champions Wigan Warriors.

The former Leeds Rhinos academy man spent time on loan at York City Knights this year as well as featuring for Hull’s Reserves team.

On the loan move, Hull FC head coach Lee Radford said: “”It will be a great move for him to continue his development with the aim of becoming a regular Super League player.

“In the short time he has been with us he has shown that he has a real opportunity to compete with us for a regular starting spot from next season and beyond.”
