Andy Last confirms his stance on taking over permanently as Castleford Tigers coach

Andy Last has taken interim charge over the Castleford Tigers following the departure of Lee Radford just as he did at Hull FC in 2020 in the same situation.

That time he led Hull FC to the semi-finals but Brett Hodgson got the job permanently.

This time, Last has confirmed he would like the job permanently saying to BBC Sport West Yorkshire:

“It’s early, out of respect for the guy who has just moved on from the position I don’t want to speak in depth with regards to taking the position but it is definitely something I want to consider ultimately it will be the players who decide if I get the job.

“It will be their performances and if they turn the good performances into results.

“It is definitely something I want to do, I had a taste at Hull FC and I felt I did a reasonable job there and I think I could do a good job here.”

He then underlined his credentials for the role:

“I have been a coach since 23 and ‘m now 42, I have a lot of experience and I have worked with a lot of good coaches and with England.

“I have vast experience with working with top coaches and I have picked their brains and I have also coached some top players, who have a good standard in the game who would tell you if you weren’t very good and I only got good feedback.

“I am confident in what I am able to do and hopefully I will get the opportunity.”
