JAMIE ELLIS has been recalled by parent club Leigh Centurions following his two-week loan at York City Knights.

The 31-year-old made two appearances for the Knights after arriving a fortnight ago.

With Ellis's return to Super League outfit Leigh, York head coach James Ford will again be forced into changing the unsettled half-back position for Sunday's home game against Newcastle Thunder.

Both of the half-back's appearances for the Knights came in losses, one a 22-20 reversal at the LNER Community Stadium to Batley Bulldogs and the other a rather more dispiriting 37-12 defeat at Whitehaven.
