Super League strugglers Wakefield Wildcats have signed Widnes forward Ben Kavanagh on loan for the rest of the season.
The 27-year-old Scotland international is under contract with the Vikings until 2016 and has appeared in six of their 10 Super League matches so far this year but was not guaranteed a regular spot in coach Denis Betts' team.
"Ben is just on the edge of our first-team squad so the opportunity to play with the Wakefield team for the remainder of this season will give him the chance to get some regular first-team action," Betts said.
Wakefield, bottom of the table after losing their last eight matches, have been badly hit by injuries and have lost the services of George Griffin (Salford) and Jordan Hand (St Helens) following the expiry of their month-long loan deals.
Wildcats coach James Webster said: "I was lucky enough to have played with Ben at Widnes when he was just starting out his career. He will add some size and speed to an area we have been short in over the past six weeks."

He made 20 appearances for the Black and Whites and is now hoping to prove himself with the Wildcats.
"Wakefield have given me a great opportunity to rediscover my best form and this is a challenge I'm eager to fulfil," said Miller, who moved to England following his release by Wests Tigers last year.
Head coach James Webster added: "Jacob's signing allows us to have greater depth and competition in the halves.
“He is similar to many players that have signed for Wakefield in that he is a young player with a point to prove and a burning desire to cement a spot in the team."
Hull KR's Justin Poore has confirmed his retirement from rugby league following a knee injury.
The 29-year-old enjoyed a successful career in both Super League and the NRL which saw him make 209 appearances.
Poore joined Wakefield Wildcats before moving to Hull where he impressed Robins fans during his stay.
The Australian fractured his knee cap on Easter Monday against Catalan Dragons and despite having successful surgery and rehab, Poore has decided to return home.
Poore said: "It's never an easy call to make but I know it's the right decision for me, my family and for the club as well.
"My knee has been responding well to treatment but the feedback from the medical staff is that I run the risk of damaging it further if I was to return.
"The contact might mean I would never be able to walk properly again and that's not a risk I want to take."
