Sheffield sign Ward and Farrell

Posted by

Sheffield Eagles have confirmed the signing of pair Robbie Ward and Izaac Farrell for the 2020 season.

Ward, brother of Leeds Rhinos forward Stevie, signs from Dewsbury Rams on a two year contract.

While Farrell, brother of Eagles forward Joel, signs from Huddersfield Giants, but he spent the latter part of 2019 on loan with Rochdale Hornets.

“I am very pleased to be here,” Ward said.

“I was liking the stuff Mark (Aston) was saying about the club, especially after winning the 1895 Cup and finishing quite high in the table.

“He (Aston) was keen to get me signed up, I’ve heard good things about him and also about the club.

“When the deal was on the table, I snatched his hand off really.”

Farrell added: “I am really happy to have been given the opportunity to prove myself in the Championship.

“Under a coach like Mark Aston, I can definitely see myself improving game by game in the future.”
