Alex Sutcliffe reveals what position he will play for Castleford Tigers

Alex Sutcliffe is one of 11 new recruits in Lee Radford’s overhaul of the Castleford Tigers.

With just 15 appearances under his name for Leeds, Sutcliffe has spent a lot of time on dual registration and on-loan at Featherstone Rovers, accumulating 20 appearances over a period of three seasons.

Now, though, he is part of Radford’s revolution as the Tigers prepare to enter a new season without Daryl Powell for the first time since 2013.

Whilst Sutcliffe has experimented in the centres and second-row, it is the latter where the 23-year-old is expected to play most of his rugby for Castleford – and it’s a question that he gets asked a lot.

“It’s probably a question I’ve asked myself but under Radders (Lee Radford) it’s definitely second-row,” Sutcliffe told the club’s Instagram page.

“It’s probably more my position so I can get more involved in all the grit and get stuck in.”

Since moving to the Tigers in the off-season, Sutcliffe has seen first-hand the potential within the Castleford squad, but one young lad in particular has stood out as ‘the best trainer’.

“I would probably have to say Cain Robb, he’s really impressed me since I came in.

“He’s energetic and everything a young lad should be and he’s absolutely smashed it in training so he’s impressed this year.”
