Lennon an instant capture for Hull
Hull Kingston Rovers have continued their team strengthening with the capture of former Castleford utility back Mark Lennon.
Rovers coach Justin Morgan has followed up the loan signings of Ian Hardman from St Helens and Danny Hill from Wigan Warriors with the recruitment of his former Wales international team-mate until the end of the season.
The 27-year-old made 51 Super League appearances for Castleford between 2001 and 2003 and has also played in his native Australia at reserve-grade level for Cronulla and Manly Sea Eagles.
"It's a given fact that due to a number of injuries we have sustained so far this season, Mark is an important addition to the team," said Morgan.
"It's also of added benefit that he's an accomplished goal-kicker. Mark's a very versatile player and can cover a number of positions. He adds a new dimension to the backs and more importantly he his available to play this weekend."
Lennon is set to make his debut against Salford at Craven Park on Sunday as a replacement for winger Jon Steel, who is out for the rest of the season after breaking both his tibia and fibula in last Sunday's defeat at Bradford Bulls.
Lennon was a regular for Wales throughout his three seasons at Castleford, playing at full-back and in both half-back positions.
He even flew back from Australia to play for his country in 2003 and he was a member of the Welsh team that reached the final of the European Nations Cup in Carcassonne in 2004.
