Ex-Super League player backs former club to be “successful” in 2023

In 2023, Castleford Tigers will be without Cheyse Blair for the first time since he joined the club in 2018 after a three year spell with Melbourne Storm as they played in two consecutive Grand Finals.

This is why Blair initially declined the move to the Tigers though a phone call with Daryl Powell changed his mind.

“I Kept hearing through the media that Castleford were interested in me. At first I declined and wanted to stay in Melbourne but the interest increased and it was something I always wanted to do, play in the Super League, so I took the opportunity after a phone call from Daryl Powell,” he said to Serious About Rugby League.

He still has a soft spot for the club and has tipped them for success in 2023: “Yeah for sure I’ll keep watching them.

“They have a good group of lads there. They definitely have a squad that can be successful.

“I wish them the best.

He also explained the difference between Super League and the NRL:

“The NRL is definitely a faster game. Somehow I felt the Super League was tough in a way of how many games you need to play in a certain amount of days. Through the Easter period you play 3 games in 10 days. Not good player Welfare that. They don’t do that in the NRL so that was tough.”

Meanwhile, his favourite memory was success against Wakefield Trinity:

“My favourite Memory would be probably the derby with Wakefield and never losing to them.”
