Prop Joe Ryan has penned a deal with North Wales Crusaders for the 2020 season.

Ryan, who has experience in the semi-professional ranks with the likes of Rochdale Hornets and Workington Town, first joined Crusaders on loan from the former early on in the 2019 campaign.

Following his release from the Hornets, the 24-year-old rejoined North Wales on a permanent deal later on in the season, making eight appearances in total for the Wrexham club last term.

With Crusaders set to take on Barrow Raiders this Sunday (January 12) in their first outing of pre-season, Ryan has extended his stay at the club by another year.
