Sheffield Eagles have completed their second important signing in 24 hours with the capture of Andy Hay, Castleford's Great Britain Under- 21 international. The 21-year-old 6ft 2in, 15st second-row forward joins Johnny Lawless, the Halifax hooker, in moving to the south Yorkshire club.

Steve Molloy, the Featherstone captain and Great Britain prop, has ended speculation about his future by signing a new 18-month contract, which will keep at Post Office Road for the shortened winter season and the first Super League season in 1996. St Helens were interested in the 26- year-old player, who was signed by Rovers from Leeds two years ago for pounds 100,000.
