FORMER York City Knights loanee Will Oakes has signed for the club's fellow Betfred Championship competitors Dewsbury Rams on loan.

Oakes played 14 times for the Knights on loan last season - including in all of the side's last eight matches as they qualified for the play-offs having sealed third spot in the Championship.

In the 2018 season, the winger scored six tries in 10 appearances for James Ford's side whilst on dual registration from Hull Kingston Rovers.

The 20-year-old, who is contracted to parent club Hull KR until the end of the 2021 season, is now set for a second loan spell away from Craven Park having signed a season-long loan to Dewsbury.

The deal looks to have come about as a result of the dual registration partnership between Hull KR and Dewsbury.
