Betfred and the Rugby Football League (RFL)
NEW loan signing Nyle Flynn, a forward from Batley Bulldogs, goes straight into Stu Littler's 21-man squad for Saturday's Betfred League One clash with table-topping North Wales Crusaders in Colwyn Bay (5.30pm kick-off).
Aged 24, Flynn is on a season-long loan with a 48-hour recall clause as he fights back after a long spell out of the game with a knee injury.
Littler describes him as Batley's unsung hero, given the impact he made at the Bulldogs before he was injured.
He made 19 appearances for Batley last season -- 18 of them in the Championship, in which Bulldogs finished fourth behind Toulouse, Featherstone Rovers and Halifax.
Flynn and prop Dom Newton replace Ryan Wright and Jack Coventry, who were in the 21 at Doncaster, but didn't play.
This week's squad: Andrade, Cameron, Carr, Cooke, Ferry, Flynn, Hartley, Hewitt, Holcroft, Jinks, Morgan, Nelmes, Newton, Restall, Ridyard, Slater, Spencer, Thornton, Whittel, Windrow, Yarrow.
