York extend Baldwinson contract

York have strengthened their forward pack further for 2020 with the re-signing of prop Jordan Baldwinson.

The 25-year-old initially joined the Knights on loan from Wakefield last season, before making it a permanent move.

Baldwinson has over 120 games-worth of experience under his belt, having played for Leeds, New Zealand Warriors, Bradford, Featherstone, Leigh and Halifax throughout his career.

Baldwinson started his career in the Leeds Rhinos academy.

“I’m delighted to extend my time at York,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed my development at the club both individually and as part of this team.

“I want to keep improving and being the best player I can be, I’m sure under Fordy I can achieve that.”

York head coach James Ford added: “Jordan is another player that we feel has at least another couple of levels in him. At some really testing times last season, Jordan stood up and showed immense character. That character will stand Jordan and York in good stead.

“Jordan is a good size and is another front rower who has much more ability with the ball than he realises. We’ll be looking to encourage a little more offload and play without losing any of that physicality in him for the coming season.”
