Castleford Tigers open chequebook to make exciting double signing

Castleford Tigers have confirmed the signing of Innes Senior and Louis Senior on two-year deals.

The twins both signed for the Fords on initial loan deals this year, with Innes signing from Huddersfield Giants and Louis from Hull KR.

Innes Senior is the third-highest try scorer in Super League this season, while Louis scored on his debut against Wigan and twice in an exciting draw against Leigh Leopards.

Castleford Director of Rugby Danny Wilson said:

“With Innes, he came into the squad as a fringe player and as we talk about our DNA and talk about our big, tall, athletic outside backs, he fit that perfectly.

“He’s came in and lit Castleford alight and to be one of the top try scorers in Super League is a great testament to him and how he finishes.

“I think when you look at adding quality to a squad, we had to go to Innes hard and get him to commit to us.”

“You see what he’s doing early on and you think, well if only you could find another that was like him and looked like him and plays like him and luckily he has a twin brother!”

After the initial success of Innes Senior, they then went on to sign his brother, Louis, and on him, Wilson continued: “Louis has come in and done exactly the same, scoring full-length tries and finishing tries really well.

So, to get them both tied down and to have the opportunity to play like for like on either wing is only good for Castleford moving forward and I think if you look at the back line we’re putting together it’s very exciting for the future.”

The two have been key to Castleford’s good performances this season, and have been a shining light even in the bad ones.

Innes Senior scored an incredible four tries against Salford Red Devils, and he and Louis are just the latest in a string of Castleford Tigers re-signings.
