One off contract player Castleford Tigers need to tie down

Though the 2023 Super League season has yet to begin, preparations for beyond that will have already begun especially as most sides have already done all their business for the 2023 barring the likes of Catalans Dragons, Leigh Leopards and potentially Salford Red Devils.

As in the NRL, considerations will be made to how squads for the 2024 season will look especially after they set the precedent down under of making signings well in advance because of the 1st November rule.

All sides have players off contract at the end of 2023 and they will definitely want to secure some of these players down moving forward, and we will likely start to see this happen sooner rather than later especially as current clubs are allowed to underline what they intend for their current players coming off contract and essentially have first dibs.

So, considering this, which off contract player should Castleford Tigers look to tie down for 2024 and beyond.

The Tigers have over 10 players coming off contract at the end of next season but the one player they need to tie down is former Hull KR star George Lawler.

The forward offers the Tigers great versatility and on his day he is one of the best modern forwards in Super League.

In his prime years at 27, he is a player the Tigers need to keep being able to play at hooker, prop, second-row and loose-forward.

Meanwhile, with Joe Westerman in the twilight of his career, it is another reason why the Tigers should tie him down.
