Update: Five Move On Loan

Calvin Wellington, Liam Cooper and Jonah Cunningham have joined Sheffield on loan for the rest of the season.

They have made the move to gain more game time but remain available for our Reserves if not selected by the Eagles.

Of the trio, Calvin is the only one with Super League experience.

The centre made his debut against Huddersfield at the Magic Weekend in 2016.

Liam is a second rower who captained the Academy side to the Under 19s Championship last season whilst utility forward Jonah has appeared 10 times for the Reserves this year.

Saints CEO Mike Rush said: “The loan deals for Calvin, Liam and Jonah are a vital part of their development.

“They will remain available for our reserves but this will allow them to gain more game time and experience.

“We thank Sheffield for their help in securing these agreements.”

Meanwhile, Jake Spedding will return to the Saints after playing nine times for the Eagles.

Due to RFL operational rules, the centre has not appeared in enough games for Sheffield to be eligible to play for both sides in the final stage of the season.

Five of his matches were on loan and therefore not applicable.

Jack Owens has also signed for the Eagles.

The fullback originally agreed terms to remain on loan at Sheffield until the end of the season.

But that has now become permanent after he was released from his contract.

We wish him all the best in his future career and once again thank him for his efforts in the red vee.

Also moving on loan is Ben Morris who has joined Oldham for the rest of the season.

Reserve winger Dave Eccleston has also moved to North Wales Crusaders. He remains available for the Reserves competition whereas Ben doesn’t.
