Wigan Warriors: Joe Shorrocks joins Leigh Leopards on a short-term loan

Wigan Warriors loose forward Joe Shorrocks has joined Leigh Leopards on an initial two-week loan deal.

The 23-year-old is yet to feature for Matty Peet’s side so far this season, and makes the temporary move across the borough in order to pick up more game time.

His first game for the Leopards could come this Friday in an away trip to Hull KR.

“This is an excellent opportunity for Joe and suits all parties,” Peet said.
