Castleford Tigers reveal stunning new kit which pays homage to former player

Castleford Tigers have a great record in terms of kits.

The Tigers have three kits already this season and all three have their merits.

Their home jersey is orange put predominately black in a sleek modern take on the club’s traditional look.

Their away kit substitutes black for white in a brilliantly smart shirt.

Lastly they have a third kit which pays homage to the club’s past and it is one of the best looking kits of the season and looked incredibly smart when worn at home last week.

Now the Tigers have launched their fourth kit paying tribute to a former player.

Design pays homage to former legendary player Tawera Nikau, featuring nods to Nikau’s Moari and New Zealand heritage.

He spent five years at the Jungle and later had a spell at Warrington Wolves.

He represented New Zealand 19 times.

Here is the brilliant jersey:

The kit will be worn at the Magic Weekend as they take on rivals Leeds Rhinos.

Last year the Tigers were beaten by the Rhinos at the Magic Weekend 34-20 in what was eventually a blow in the Tigers’ play-off hopes.

Leeds are yet to reveal a Magic Weekend kit.

The Tigers have only won two games so far this season and new coach Andy Last needs wins as he rebuilds the squad as May comes around allowing recruitment.
