Swinton Lions have signed Nico Rizzelli on an initial two-week loan from St Helens.
The 21-year-old arrives highly rated by the Saints, having made his Super League debut as an under-19 last season against Salford Red Devils.
Rizzelli can play as centre or winger and stands at 5 feet 11 inches.
Currently, at the Totally Wicked Stadium, he faces tough opposition from the outside-back positions.
At Swinton Lions we are pleased to report the signing of St Helens centre or winger Nico Rizzelli on an initial two weeks loan deal.

Swinton Lions have thanked St Helens RLFC for their co-operation and support in agreeing the loan.
