Castleford Tigers sign two Super League stars ahead of Lee Radford’s recruitment drive

Castleford Tigers have reportedly signed two Super League stars ahead of the 2023 season.

Head coach Lee Radford already turned the West Yorkshire club on its head by signing the likes of Jake Mamo, Bureta Faraimo and Mahe Fonua whilst those such as Peter Mata’utia and Oliver Holmes left.

However, the former Hull FC head coach is not finished there with two – according to Sky Sports pundit Jenna Brooks – coming in to the Jungle.

Those two mentioned are Leeds Rhinos’ Jack Broadbent and Wakefield Trinity’s Jacob Miller.

For Radford going into the 2023 Super League season, he wants his recruitment done quickly, but had envisaged a large turnover of players at the club.

“It’s (the transfer market) getting a little bit busier and a little bit faster,” Radford told BBC West Yorkshire Sport.

“It’s a funny one; there are two ways you go about your recruitment, you get it done early and know what you’ve done at the risk of losing a bargain at the end of the year or you hold out and see if anything crops up and it doesn’t.

“I’ve always done my recruitment and retainment early for the purposes of planning.”

When asked if he expects a big turnover, Radford said: “There will be five or six give or take.”
