Whitehaven have signed full-back Ian Mort on a month-long loan from Championship rivals Leigh Centurions.

Mort, 21, top-scored with 11 tries for Leigh last season, but is moving to Haven to boost his match fitness after failing to figure in recent matches.

"Competition for places in the first team squad is really high at the moment," said Leigh coach Ian Millward.

"A spell up at Whitehaven will help in his development, for when further opportunities arise."
