Leigh have added further strength to their squad with the additions of Cameron Scott and Lewis Bienek on loan from Hull FC.

The pair have agreed terms to remain with the Centurions for the full season, with Scott having signed a new contract that ties him to his parent club until the end of 2022.

Radford said: “They’re going to be playing week in, week out against strong opposition in that league, and for both of them, that’s what they need at this point in their career.

“Playing at Leigh is the closest you can get to being in a Super League standard squad, without the team actually being involved in Super League.

“We want both players to come through and have long-term careers at Hull FC so hopefully they can develop as players with the opportunity that has been given to them.”

Leigh coach John Duffy said: “Lewis appeared on the scene after coming through the Academy pathway at London Broncos while Andrew Henderson was there coaching.

“He enjoyed a brilliant couple of seasons before London made Super League and Hull FC took a chance on him last year. He’s a big boy, a really athletic front runner who takes some putting down when he’s on his game.

“I’m looking forward to getting him down here and adding some size to our pack. He’s excited to be linking up with a few of the former London lads like Jarrod Sammut, Mark Ioane, Tom Spencer and Ben Hellewell.”

“And I am looking to using Cameron Scott in both those positions in the friendly against Wigan Warriors.

“He’s very excited about coming on board and getting some game time.”

Hull announced a dual-registration partnership with Bradford earlier this week.
