Versatile forward Jake Lloyd is comfortable playing at either hooker or loose forward.
The 25-year-old former Leigh Miner Rangers amateur started last term in fine form and in his and Cornwall’s third professional outing, scored a fine individual try in the 52-16 Easter Saturday reverse at Doncaster.
Lloyd was then dealt a blow in just the eighth game of the season at home to West Wales Raiders when he suffered a suspected dislocated elbow. This ruled the Carlyon Bay based forward out until the final few weeks of the season.
After being initially named on the bench for the final home match against Oldham, an eleventh hour injury to Josh Hartshorne forced a reshuffle and Lloyd was thrust into the fray at loose forward.
Showing no ill-effects from his three month spell on the sidelines, Lloyd was voted supporters’ man of the match in a stellar comeback showing. He then finished the season with an 80 minute stint at hooker in the reverse at Midlands Hurricanes.
