Castleford pair Lo and Aston join Sheffield on loan

Garry Lo and Cory Aston have joined former club Sheffield on a month’s loan from Super League side Castleford.

The pair provide a welcome boost to Mark Aston’s squad ahead of their Championship opener against Dewsbury on Friday night.

Aston said: I’m delighted we’ve been able to bring in Cory and Garry.

“The key thing is they know our systems very well, both were part of this club for some time and will go straight into contention for Friday’s night match against Dewsbury.

“Garry was absolutely outstanding at the World Cup and had NRL clubs interested in him which shows what he can become if he continues to develop.

“He and Cory are in a great environment at Castleford under the likes of Daryl (Powell) & Shez (Ryan Sheridan) and will be a big boost for us over the next month.”

Lo, 24, scored 37 tries for the Eagles last season before securing a move to the Tigers, while Aston spent 2017 at Leeds.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “Both Garry and Cory have been working hard within our environment and this loan period will give them an opportunity to get game time under their belts in the Championship.

“I look forward to seeing them play for Sheffield with a view to them putting pressure on our first team players in the near future.”
