Free agent could still have future at Castleford Tigers

Last year former Wigan Warriors and Wakefield Trinity man Ryan Hampshire returned to Castleford Tigers but was soon hit by a number of injuries.

Thus, as his contract expired at Castleford, he was still recovering from injury and the club have kept by him during this time and according to boss Lee Radford he could very well still have a future at the Tigers when his recovery is complete leaving him a free agent but with a foot in the door at the Jungle after their support during this time.

“We’ll wait and see, he has just literally got back on the field for his first official run. So there is no movement there, but he is doing well with his rehab,” Radford said on Tigers TV.

“His contract is currently expired, but we want to get him right and give him the opportunity to put his best foot forward.

“I thought he was really good for us last year, cap determines a lot of what you can do but the priority is getting him fit and right and any club should do the same.”

However, any further signings remain unlikely due to their salary cap situation:

“No not unless there is any movement, if you have a look at our squad it’s a fair old squad in terms of numbers.”

It remains to be seen whether Hampshire signs a new deal at the club or moves on after he recovers from injury after he took to the to the field for a first time since his injury.
