Castleford Tigers confirm injury blow ahead of 2023 Super League season

Castleford Tigers have unfortunately had to confirm that young forward Kieran Hudson has suffered an Achilles injury.

The 22-year-old picked up the injury during pre-season and will now enter a rehabilitation period to ensure he gets back on the field as soon as possible.

Hudson joined the Tigers almost a year ago from Cumbrian outfit Whitehaven before returning to Haven on loan for the duration of the 2022 campaign.

Kieran’s transition into the Castleford First Team environment has been incredibly smooth due to his exemplary work ethic and Head Coach Lee Radford believes this setback will only be a small bump in the road for the youngster.

“It’s obviously heartbreaking for him because he started pre-season so well, so picking up this injury is a tough one to take for him.

“We’ll take care of him and try to help him get back to full fitness so he can reach the levels we know he is capable of.”

This comes after Radford spoke about the injury to Callum McLelland on Tigers TV:

“Really disappointing, he signed him on the impression that he would be back last April. To lose another half for the season was disappointing, then it was all systems go for this year.

“We need a progression in him.

“It’s one of them, I don’t want to predict something and it doesn’t come off.

“With Danny Richardson being out for the season with his injury, we’re short in that position already.”
