Castleford Tigers forward joins ambitious Championship for 2024 season

Another Castleford Tigers forward in the shape of young Bailey Dawson has found a new club with the former Hull KR forward joining the Dewsbury Rams.

The twenty-year-old front rower, who was most recently at Castleford Tigers, made nine appearances for Midlands Hurricanes in 2023 scoring four tries and made one appearance for Whitehaven. Prior to his move to Castleford, Dawson featured prominently in the Hull KR academy and reserve sides.

Upon signing Dawson said, “I’m absolutely buzzing to get the deal over the line, as soon as I was made aware of the opportunity, I knew it would be great move for myself and my development.

I’ve been in the full-time environment with both Hull KR and Castleford for around two years, I think with those experiences I will be looking to push on in the Championship this year with the Rams.

For me personally, this year I just want to play as much as I can and hopefully nail down a starting position, but it’s definitely a big year for myself and the team and I’m looking forward to getting started!

I can’t wait to get ripped into pre-season and meet all the lads.”

Head Coach Dale Ferguson said, “Bailey’s a young front rower, who’s going to be looking to earn his spot in the side this year. He’s very skilful with the ball and a good runner, so I’m looking to see how he can develop over the next year.”

This comes as the newly promoted Championship confirmed plans for a fans forum this month.

They will be hosting a Fans Forum on Friday 24th November in the Royal Suite at FLAIR Stadium starting at 19:00.

This will be fans’ chance to put your questions to both Chairman Mark Sawyer and Head Coach Dale Ferguson.

The Fans Forum will be free to attend and no tickets will be required, the bar will be open for refreshments.
