Workington Town have signed experienced Newcastle Thunder veteran Joe Brown on a one-month loan.

Brown, who is embarking on his 13th season with Thunder and what is due to be his last in rugby league, will link up with head coach Chris Thorman and his squad.

Thorman said: "We are delighted to welcome Joe Brown to the club on a one-month loan.

"Joe will bring some needed experience to the group, being Newcastle Thunder's most-capped player.

"He's an outside back that is equally at home on the wing as he is in the centres.

"Competition for places in the squad is hotting up and Browny will only add to that, especially with a tough few games coming up in the next month."
