Owen joins Sheffield on loan
Hooker Gareth Owen has become the third Salford player to join Championship Grand Final winners Sheffield Eagles on a season-long loan.
The 21-year-old, who has made 36 Super League appearances but is now the Red Devils' third-choice hooker, follows team-mates Will Hope and Jon Ford to Owlerton for 2014.
"I'm excited to be joining the Eagles," said Owen, who is set to make his debut against Swinton on Sunday. "They had a great season last year, winning the Championship for a second successive year and I hope I can help them defend the trophy again in 2014."
