Kiwi Kitto joins Warriors... for a while
TRANSFER NEWS: Warriors have signed scrumhalf Jono Kitto on a short-term loan deal from Leicester Tigers, who joins the club with immediate effect.
With number nines Luke Baldwin (bicep) and Jonny Arr (concussion) out injured, Director of Rugby Gary Gold has acted to bring in the 25-year-old New Zealander as cover.
Kitto, a former New Zealand Under-20 international, has made 29 appearances for Tigers, having played for Bay of Plenty in New Zealand, while also having been called up to the Waikato Chiefs Development squad in 2015.
The pacey scrumhalf recently featured for Leicester in the Premiership Rugby A League against Worcester Cavaliers, scoring a scintillating solo try at Sixways.
