Multiple Super League clubs interested in Greg Eden after Castleford Tigers exit

It was widely believed that Castleford Tigers winger Greg Eden was set to make the small trip down the road to link up with Featherstone Rovers in 2024 after it was confirmed he would be leaving the club following an excellent seven year spell at the Jungle.

Eden had the near impossible task of replacing Denny Solomona on the wing for the Tigers but in 2017 was Super League’s top try scorer by a country mile and came close to breaking the Castleford club record in the Grand Final.

The former Hull KR, Huddersfield Giants and Brisbane Broncos fullback was key as the Tigers reached a first ever Grand Final with Eden forced to switch back to fullback to replace Zak Hardaker that night.

In the years since, despite injuries getting in the way, Eden only extended his legacy at the Jungle but has now left the club.

He was one of many players set to join Featherstone but their failure to secure Super League promotion undermined their plans. The club have now dropped down their playing budget down by 50% meaning some of the big signings they had planned have fallen through such as Greg Eden’s arrival.

Serious About Rugby League now understands that there are multiple clubs interested in securing his services for next year. In fact, it could be as many as three. It was reported by Rugby League Live that Catalans Dragons are amongst those interested.

This is a surprise given they have Tom Johnstone, Tom Davies and Fouad Yaha already. Yaha seems set to leave the club if they bring in Eden for next year.

However, the French club face competition for the winger. Leeds Rhinos are another club who could have an interest in the winger. This is dependent on the future of Derrell Olpherts and Serious About Rugby League exclusively revealed last week that the winger turned down a move to Leigh Leopards for 2024.

It is likely that it could be the Leopards given their interest in Olpherts as they look to add to their squad for the 2024 season having had one of the smallest squads in Super League in 2023.
