On-loan Leeds Rhinos half-back Cory Aston is set to play for Featherstone Rovers against his parent club in Friday’s Ladbrokes Challenge Cup quarter-final.

Aston has yet to make a senior appearance for Rhinos since joining them from Sheffield Eagles in the closed season and has spent most of this campaign at Rovers.

He was left out of the Kingstone Press Championship side’s last two games, but has been included in their initial 19 for the trip to Headingley.

Brad Tagg is also in contention for Rovers, but dual-registered Leeds forward Jack Ormondroyd is Cup tied and Jordan Baldwinson has been recalled by Rhinos and named in their squad.

Chris Ulugia (ankle), Andy Bostock (arm) and Scott Turner (ankle) remain sidelined.

The hosts will be without suspended forward Jamie Jones-Buchanan, but Rob Burrow could return after a shoulder injury and Ash Handley is also back in contention.
