LAWTON JOINS ON LOAN
Rochdale Hornets have secured the loan signing of Adam Lawton from Super League club, Salford Red Devils.
Lawton, 25, comes in search of regular game time and strengthens Carl Forster’s options in the pack.
The former Widnes Vikings man spent some time away from the English game as he travelled to Australia and had a stint with Redcliffe Dolphins but returned to sign for the Red Devils in the off season.
In a shrewd capture for the Championship side, Carl Forster spoke of his delight as securing Lawton's services.
“It’s a great capture for us – it’s no secret that we have been working to strengthen our forward pack and Adam gives us size and power.
“He’s a skilful player and cut his teeth in Super League and got some good experience at Widnes.
"He will go really well for us and I’m looking forward to seeing him play.”
