Leeds Rhinos have taken Papua New Guinea international Wellington Albert on a month’s trial. The former Widnes Vikings forward is looking for a new deal in Super League after his old club went into administration and he will have a month at Headingley to show what he can do.
Leeds are light in the forwards’ area so he may do enough to earn a short-term contract although his 12 appearances for Widnes last season did not leave much of a lasting impression. Director of rugby Kevin Sinfield said: “We are happy to give Wellington an opportunity to train with us.
He has found himself without a club through no fault of his own and we are without a number of first-choice forwards at present. “There is no formal commitment from either party at this stage. Wellington would be free to join another club at any point.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
