Leeds Rhinos half-back Cory Aston has joined Featherstone Rovers on loan - as predicted in today’s Yorkshire Evening Post.

The 21-year-old signed for Rhinos from Sheffield Eagles last autumn, but has yet to make his competitive debut.

Rovers coach Jon Sharp said: “Cory is an extremely talented player with a big future in the game and we are sure he will prove a valuable addition to our squad.

“It is good to have him on board and we expect him to add a great deal to what we are looking to achieve this season.”

Sharp added: “The squad is shaping up brilliantly, we have started the season well and, for Cory, we believe it is a great opportunity.

“He will benefit from being out on the field more often and we are competing at high level, which will only further raise his game.”

Aston is available for selection for Sunday’s visit of Rochdale Hornets.

Five members of Rhinos’ 30-man full-time squad are now out on loan, with Jordan Lilley, Josh Jordan-Roberts, Mikolaj Oledzki and Sam Hallas all at Bradford Bulls.
