Rugby League: New signing Temata's in Oxford's squad

First published in Rugby

Oxford RL include former London Broncos prop Karl Temata in their squad for their match away to high-riding Hunslet in Kingstone Press Championship One on Sunday (3pm).

Temata signed for Oxford this week on a deal until the end of the season from leading French club Limoux Grizzlies.

The 35-year-old, who represented the Cook Islands in the 2000 World Cup, played for London Broncos/ Harlequins, for eight seasons. He was named player of the year in 2009.

As well as playing, Temata will also be joining Oxford coach Tony Benson’s backroom staff.

Benson said: “I coached him in New Zealalnd, and we have been in touch ever since.”

Oxford travel to the South Leeds Stadium looking to bounce back after their 30-24 loss to the Hemel Stags.

This will be the third time these two clubs have met this season.

Oxford crashed 68-6 at Hunslet in the Challenge Cup before going down to a 46-20 home defeat in the league.

Hunslet went down to defeat last week losing 40-0 York, who replaced them at the top.

Oxford’s Jimmy Rowland is ruled out with a ligament injury, while there are also doubts over Chris Clark (rib) and Glenn Osborn (hamstring).

Oxford RL squad: Baird, Benson, Blaney, Blewitt, Brooker, Crabtree, Connick, Clarke, Davies, Ellison, Evans, Hadden, Hoggins, Hayles, Lynch, J Morris, S Morris, Mulkeen, Newton, O'Keeffe, Parker, Rice, Roden, Sharratt, Slade-Jones, Temata, Thompson, Winfield, Wright.
