Wigan Warriors pair complete Barrow Raiders moves


Wigan Warriors have allowed prop Ben Davies and second row Jack Hughes to join Championship side Barrow Raiders on separate deals.

Davies, 21, who made five appearances for the Warriors in Super League last season has joined Raiders on a four-week loan deal.

Hughes, 19, has signed dual registration terms but is yet to make his debut for Warriors.

Both are ineligble for the Challenge Cup tie between the two clubs in April.

The duo will remain with Wigan for their physical training programme before linking up with Barrow and will be available for selection for the Cumbrians at the weekend.

Warriors rugby manager Kris Radlinski said: "We have found that the loan and dual registration contracts work perfectly for us.

"We liaise closely with the chosen clubs to make sure that the player is getting what we require out of the move.

"Liam Farrell, Chris Tuson, Josh Charnley and Stefan Marsh all went to various clubs last year and they are now pushing for first-team places with Wigan every week."
