Castleford Tigers star Bureta Faraimo set to make rugby union appearance

It’s Grand Final day, a day that every Super League player dreams of being part of.

For Castleford, they were so close to being in the play-off mix. With seven minutes left of the season they led 8-0 away at Leeds knowing that a win would secure a play-off spot for the Tigers and see the Rhinos miss out.

However, tries from Kruise Leeming and Aidan Sezer flipped the game on its head sending Leeds into the play-offs as the Tigers were left planning for 2023.

Of course, plenty of their players have World Cups to look forward to, but one of their stars couldn’t wait to get out on the field again.

Former Hull FC winger Bureta Faraimo is set to play rugby union today for Pocklington today against Old Bordleians at 3pm.

The winger is set to start on the bench for the rugby union club being related to Richie Kaisia who plays for the union side through marriage.

He has been allowed to play by Castleford Tigers to play in the games and it seems like he is set to play more than one with Pocklington saying he’s “looking forward to playing with Richie for a few games during the rugby league closed season.”

He will start today’s game on the bench.

A United States international and with the USA not in the men’s World Cup only appearing in the Wheelchair tournament he’ll be missing out whilst teammates play, so this will likely keep him sharp for the next few months but Castleford fans will be hoping he avoids injury.
