Callum McLelland set for spell on sideline

Callum McLelland is back at Castleford Tigers after a few years away at Leeds Rhinos and Scotland Rugby Union.

The 22-year-old made just 11 appearances in his three seasons at Leeds, with two loan deals at Featherstone Rovers yielding more games than his entire career at Headingley.

However, when given a chance by Leeds Rhinos boss Richard Agar, the halfback suffered a cruel patella tendon injury that ended his season prematurely.

And, his agent, Craig Harrison – also responsible for the player agency Show Me The Money UK – has revealed just when McLelland is expected to be back in the fray for the Tigers.

“He will be back in April or May time but he will be back stronger than ever,” Harrison revealed on The Full Eighty Minutes.

“With poor old Callum he needs to get a coach that believes in him and needs to be playing regularly and then we will see the best of him.”

Harrison was also keen to stress that young players need backing from their coaches.

“We can’t see the best of these young players until we find a coach that needs them and a system that they can play in.

“So, please Cas, he is back there and I hope they give him a chance to play 10, 15 games when he is back fit.”
