Josh Rhodes’ Loan Extended

May 3, 2024

Cornwall RLFC have extended Josh Rhodes’ loan from Batley Bulldogs until the end of 2024 Betfred League 1 season.

The prop forward joined Cornwall on a two-week loan from the Championship outfit last month and featured matches against Midlands Hurricanes and Workington Town, from the interchange bench.

In the Choughs’ defeat to the Cumbrians, Rhodes was voted the supporters’ player of the match and he was also denied a first senior try by a marginal refereeing decision.

“We took our time to have a good look at Josh,” Abbott added. “It was difficult for him in the game against Midlands because all over the park, we were second best.

“Against Workington, Josh was excellent and at half-time, I thought to myself ‘I want this kid for the rest of the season’.

“Again, thanks to the endeavours of John Beach and everyone at Josh’s parent club Batley, we have been able to get this deal over the line.”
