Saints half-back Travis Burns has joined Leigh Centurions on loan for the rest of the season.

The 31-year-old signed for Saints from Hull KR for the 2015 season - and to date has made 34 appearances.

But chances for first team action this year have been limited and the former Penrith Panther has been playing in the Reserves competition.

Saints CEO Mike Rush said: “Travis has been a true professional this season and his dedication in training and in guiding our younger players around the field in the Reserves competition second to none. His experience has been invaluable.

“It’s clear though at this stage of his career he needs to play regular football at the highest level and we thank Neil Jukes and Derek Beaumont at Leigh for making this move happen.

“We wish Travis all the best for the rest of the season.”
