Dowes makes Dewsbury move

Championship club Dewsbury have signed former Leeds and Hull prop Ewan Dowes and taken Wakefield forward Lucas Walshaw on a month's loan.

Dowes, 33, was a Challenge Cup winner with Hull and is joining the Rams for the rest of the season after leaving Workington, while Walshaw is back at the Tetley's Stadium following a successful loan spell in 2013.

Walshaw, 21, has made 14 appearances in Super League, featuring the first three games of this season, but was left out of the side that beat Catalan Dragons last Sunday and will be available for Dewsbury's Tetley's Challenge Cup third-round tie against West Hull on Sunday.
