Owen who is the brother of our very own Kyle Trout and Mustapha have risen through the ranks at Leeds Rhinos and have now been given the chance to prove their ability on a different stage.
On the loan deal head coach Lee Greenwood said: “We got made aware of their availability and how well they were doing at Leeds, they play in their 19’s, they are second years and have done well. Leeds are keen to sort of accelerate their path to the first team and they feel like they want to get them out on loan to Championship side.
“It is a massive step up from playing 19’s to then playing at Super League level, so they think it is a good progression for them to play in a Championship team and get some games under their belts.
“One of them is a family member of a player that we already have here which is nice, hopefully that will put another three people on the gate for the weekend if there is a few more family to come and watch. They are young keen lads, and when you get good lads coming in from a full time environment in training that is what we want. They will rub off on our lads too and that can only be a good thing coming from a full time set up. They are exactly what we want and they fit in to what we are about, we are not going to keep them long term as they are earmarked for playing at Super League level for Leeds but as an individual and coaching staff we like to work with young players. That may not always mean that they are our players beyond this year but we like to help players kick on and improve.”
“We are looking forward to working with them and seeing how they go in our team over the next few weeks.”
