YORK City Knights have brought in Mikey Lewis on an initial one-month loan deal from Hull Kingston Rovers.

The well-regarded 19-year-old, who can play at half-back or full-back, has started KR’s first three matches of the Betfred Super League season, scoring two tries.

He could feature for the Knights during Sunday’s trip to face Widnes Vikings.

Prior to making his breakthrough at The Robins, Lewis starred in 2019 for Newcastle Thunder, making seven appearances and scoring seven tries.

Lewis’s arrival gives Knights head coach James Ford options ahead of this weekend’s trip to face Widnes Vikings, including the possibility that Matty Marsh could return back to a full-back berth where he has impressed.

Ford commented: “Mikey is a talented young half, hooker or full-back who has a good level of competitiveness about him. If Mikey is willing to work hard at areas of his game, I can see him becoming a very good full-back or half in the future.”

Lewis's deal includes a two-week recall period.

Meanwhile, Brendan O’Hagan, Kriss Brining and Tyme Dow-Nikau are all about a week away from full training.
