AS he prepares to spend the 2020 season away from Warrington Wolves, Harvey Livett admits he found the cutting-short of this year’s loan spell at Hull Kingston Rovers “frustrating.”

Livett has rejoined the Robins on a season-long loan for next season – his second spell at Craven Park.

He and teammate Luis Johnson spent a month on loan under former Wire head coach Tony Smith before being recalled by The Wire.

He started three games upon returning to his hometown club but is now looking forward to a season of regular Super League rugby.

The second rower is also looking forward to getting out of his comfort zone and moving away from Warrington for the first time.

“I really enjoyed my loan spell at Rovers earlier in the 2019 season. They were a great bunch of lads and the club has a great fanbase,” he told Rovers’ official website.

“I was recalled to Warrington which was fine, as I am still their player.

“It was frustrating not to get much game-time when I did arrive back at Warrington so coming here for 2020 gives me that chance now to play even more games.

“I want to get those minutes racked up but I have to earn the right to do that.

“I’ve never really been out of Warrington to play rugby league. I’ve spent time on loan at Rochdale but that’s literally half an hour down the road.

“However, I’m already looking at getting a house over in Hull for next year and getting out of my comfort zone.

“I’m looking forward to experiencing life away from Warrington.”

Livett was given his senior debut by Smith in 2017 – his final year in charge at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

He went on to enjoy a breakthrough year in 2018 but found games hard to come by this year, playing just 10 times for Warrington.

Overall, Livett has made 46 first-grade appearances for The Wire having graduated from the club’s academy, including starting the 2018 Challenge Cup Final.

The former Rylands Sharks junior is out of contract at the end of 2020 but The Wire hold an option to extend his deal by a year in their favour.
