Leeds Rhinos Sign Cory Aston


Leeds Rhinos have confirmed the signing of Sheffield Eagles star, Cory Aston.

The 21-year-old has been signed on a two year deal for an undisclosed fee. Aston made 69 appearances for the Eagles and scored 31 tries for the Championship side.

Paul McShane pens new deal at Cas


Paul McShane has signed a contract extension with Castleford Tigers. The new deal will keep him at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle up until 2019.

McShane joined the Tigers from neighboring club, Wakefield Trinity Wildcats. Before that, the 26-year-old played for Leeds Rhinos, Hull FC and Widnes Vikings.

The hooker made 32 appearances last season, scoring seven tries in the process. McShane established himself as a key member of the squad at Castleford last season and fans will be happy to know he’s staying for a few more seasons.


Huddersfield Giants unveil new kit

Earlier today, the Huddersfield Giants unveiled their brand new home and alternate kits for the upcoming 2017 Super League season.

The Giants will take on Widnes in their first game of the 2017 campaign. Before that though, the players are preparing for pre-season.

For head coach Rick Stone, this will be an opportunity to build his side as he prepares for his first full season in charge.

The Australian took over the coaching responsibilities at the tail end of last season, where he led Huddersfield to a third place finish in the Qualifiers.
