GEORGE ROBY JOINS LIONS ON LOAN FROM CUP FINALISTS

12 May 2022

We are delighted to announce the loan signing of highly rated youngster George Roby from Huddersfield Giants. George trained with the Lions this evening at the club’s AJ Bell Stadium facilities.

George, a hooker, is a former England Academy player whose fantastic progress was recently rewarded by Huddersfield Head Coach Ian Watson with a contract extension to the end of 2023. He has previously had successful loan spells at North Wales Crusaders and Whitehaven.

Swinton Lions Head Coach Allan Coleman said, “George is a player that Huddersfield rate very highly. It’s great that we’ve got the deal done and I’m looking forward to seeing him in a Swinton jersey. George will bring toughness and pace to our middle.”

Swinton Lions would like to thank Ian Watson and Andy Kelly at the Giants for facilitating this loan arrangement.
