Castleford Tigers set for another signing in “key position” ahead of 2024

Castleford Tigers could be set for another signing prior to the 2024 Super League season despite what has been a busy winter already.

The Tigers have signed British talent like Leeds Rhinos fullback Luke Hooley, Hull KR centre Sam Wood and former Hull FC and St Helens outside back Josh Simm.

They have also recruited well from Australia with a number of names coming through the door such as Sylvester Namo.

The Tigers were rumoured to be looking at another overseas recruit but would have required an exit from one of their current quota players to facilitate that which hasn’t happened despite rumours around Albert Vete and Jacob Miller.

But, despite the fact the Tigers are presently not in discussions over another transfer, Head of Recruitment Danny Wilson suggested that they may not be done yet as he spoke to BBC West Yorkshire Sport.

“We haven’t just closed the door and that’s it, there is still potential to look,” he said, “We are quite happy where we are but that doesn’t mean to say that is it but we are quite happy where we are and with the 30 that we have got, we like that number, its a nice round number.

“We’re really happy with where we are but that doesn’t mean to say that there isn’t maybe one type of key position we need to continue to look at probably but at the minute there is no business being done.”

Wilson also confirmed that the Tigers had desires to play four pre-season friendlies.

“The Keighley one will be the first one which will be Jake Webster’s testimonial and we would like to have three more after that, at least two but hopefully three and we will try and hopefully get some Super League opposition.

“We feel like these boys need to be challenged all the way through pre-season. They need to be challenge in the pre-season friendlies to go into that opening Super League game as best prepared as we can be so we need to get some Super League opposition and some of that will involved Paul McShane’s testimonial game. But we are definitely looking at three more other than the Keighley game.”
