Championship side Workington Town have signed full-backs Lewis Tierney and Jack Murphy and loose forward Rob Lever from Wigan on a month's loan.

Tierney, the 19-year-old son of former Wigan great Jason Robinson, and Murphy, 21, both have Super League experience.

Lever, 18, has consistently impressed for the Warriors' Under-19 side.

"Town will have three of our quality young players as the Championship season gets underway," said Wigan rugby manager Kris Radlinski.

"For Wigan, the players will come back with some game time under their belts in a very competitive environment."

Tierney made three first-team appearances for Wigan last season.
