OLDHAM have signed outside back Louis Senior on loan from Huddersfield Giants.

The young wing or centre has played 23 games in Super League, scoring 14 tries in the elite competition. He hasn't played this season, but he scored five tries in eight Super League games last year.

Senior will be in contention for a Bower Fold debut against Widnes Vikings on Sunday – his 21st birthday.

His twin brother Innes is also at Huddersfield, but is currently out on loan at Wakefield.

Roughyeds' new man said: "I'm really looking forward to joining Oldham. It will be great to be playing again. I'll feel a bit of pressure, I suppose, because I want to make a good impression, on my 21st too if I'm playing on Sunday.

"I've probably played more wing than centre, but I'm happy in either position."

A Meltham lad, Senior started playing rugby league when he was seven with his local club. He then moved to Newsome Panthers in Huddersfield and signed for the Giants on scholarship aged 14.

He made his Super League debut on the wing against Leeds Rhinos in 2018 as a 17-year-old after showing well in the under-19s. He is coming to Oldham initially on a two-week loan, similar to those which brought in Jack Bibby and Jack Croft, both of whom have been transferred back to Wigan Warriors and Wakefield Trinity respectively.

Head coach Matt Diskin said: "Louis has a good pedigree. He's played a fair bit of Super League. He will give us some real quality on the fringes."

Chairman Chris Hamilton added: "Louis is another quality young player, who can do a good job for us."
