Castleford defend signing announcement after being trolled

Castleford Tigers announced the signing of Alex Sutcliffe from local rivals Leeds Rhinos last night, but the announcement was met with cries of disdain following the signing teaser on social media.

The Tigers Twitter account released a short video of Sutcliffe falling over the line for a try, with a black cover for most of the video.

The video certainly wasn’t popular amongst the Castleford faithful, with one in particular showing his displeasure.

However, the club has since defended the video, calling it a mere ‘teaser’.

Incoming head coach Lee Radford has spoken of his surprise that Sutcliffe was actually available.

“I’m surprised we had the opportunity to pick Alex up, he is a fantastic young player that can flip between second row and centre, but I would love for him to nail down a second-row spot,” Radford said.

“I think he has all the physical attributes and the skillset to be able to play there. If you go at him, he’ll whack you because he’s got a shot on him as well.

“I am over the moon to have secured his services because there is a long-term future for him at Castleford Tigers.”
