Cornwall Sign Joshua Rhodes

April 18, 2024

Cornwall RLFC have signed prop forward Joshua Rhodes on loan from Betfred Championship side Batley Bulldogs.

Rhodes will spend the next two weeks with Mike Abbott’s side and will be available for Sunday’s round six clash against Midlands Hurricanes.

His temporary switch to the Memorial Ground could also see Rhodes feature against Workington Town on April 28 too.

“We need to make a late call on one or two players’ fitness ahead of the Midlands games,'” head coach Mike Abbott told cornwallrlfc.co.uk.

“Joshua is highly regarded as one for the future at Batley and by coming to Cornwall for a couple of weeks, he helps strengthen our numbers in the middle, while gaining valuable experience of playing minutes in a competitive environment.

“I would like to thank Mark Moxon and Batley for their assistance in getting a deal for Joshua over the line in time for the weekend.”
