Injury-hit Wakefield Trinity Wildcats have secured the signing of Salford Red Devils forward George Griffin on a one-month loan deal.

The 22 year-old could make his debut in Sunday’s home clash against Huddersfield Giants.

The forward is yet to feature for Salford this season, having arrived at the AJ Bell Stadium from London Broncos in the off season.

However, Griffin, who is the brother of Salford team mates Josh and Darrell, has a wealth of experience in Super League, having made 40 appearances in three seasons for London and Hull KR respectively.

Head coach James Webster is currently without the likes of Matty Ashurst, Ian Kirke, Lopini Paea, Scott Anderson and Chris Annakin due to injury so is pleased to welcome the addition of Griffin to his squad.

He said: “George has had plenty of experience in Super League at both London and Hull KR. He is able to play good minutes which will help us as we are extremely short of props leading into a busy Easter period.”
