Yesterday, it was revealed that Hakim Miloudi could be set for an eight-match ban or more after being hit with a Grade F charge.
This came after he hit a player off the ball in Barrow’s defeat to Batley last week and attempted to pick up an injured player. These two incidents were rolled into one and sees Miloudi charged with Grade F which carries a minimum punishment of eight games suspended.
In light of this, Barrow have recruited Wakefield Trinity centre Jack Croft on a two-week loan to fill the void left by Miloudi. He made his Super League debut back in 2019 and has since made 10 appearances for Trinity as well as starring on loan at Oldham last year.
He will train with the squad today and is set to feature against Bradford at the weekend.
Barrow Chairman Steve Neale said: “ We want to improve and learn lessons from the 2019 Championship campaign when we were perhaps guilty of not moving quickly enough to bolster the squad when it was decimated with injuries.
“We fully intend to utilise loan deals and are still in the market, should the right players become available following the loss of the Walne brothers.
“Jack comes to us highly recommended having broken into the Wakefield Trinity Super League team in 2019 before a serious ACL injury cut short his progress. Strong in both defence and attack, he will help fill the gap left by the impending suspension of Hakim Miloudi.”
𝐖𝐞𝐥𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞, 𝐉𝐚𝐜𝐤! 🤝
We are delighted to announce that @WTrinityRL centre Jack Croft has joined the club on a short-term loan deal.
