Lee Radford has waded into the Jungle like a breath of fresh air ahead of the 2022 Super League season.
After eight-and-a-half years under Daryl Powell, the Castleford Tigers have ushered in a new era with Radford the man to lead the West Yorkshire side into it.
Despite being under contract, Danny Richardson had been linked with a move away from the Jungle earlier in the year, with Wigan reportedly chasing the number seven.
But, the halfback will definitely be staying at the club in 2022 after Radford appeared impressed with him following conversations.
“To have four young English halves is a plus for the club and we had a meeting with the spine of the team last week to pick their brains a bit,” told the Castleford website.
“There are some changes that I would like to make but I don’t think it is a case of starting from scratch, the Club has done some really good stuff on the field over the last couple of seasons. We might tweak a few things rather than rip the playbook up and start again.
“When I spoke to the spine, I thought Danny Richardson spoke and came across really well, and to have those halfbacks all fighting for a spot I am looking forward to working with them all and seeing what they bring to the table.”
Among those four halfbacks is new signing Callum McLelland, who returned to the club where it all began as a youngster.
