Super League club could be set for TWO major exits

Castleford Tigers have been busy on the recruitment front signing the likes of Luke Hooley from Leeds Rhinos, Hull KR centre Sam Wood and former Hull FC and St Helens centre Josh Simm.

But their recruitment may not be done yet with reports emerging that the club could be interested in selling some of their current quota players to open up space for further signings.

These have specifically been halfback Jacob Miller and prop Albert Vete. Vete spent time away from the club on loan at Doncaster after joining from Hull KR.

Castleford boss Craig Lingard has now addressed the futures of these players moving forward.

“We have got a lot of new players coming in as well as new staff with me and Danny McGuire. The players will be in on 9th and 10th of November for their own individual pre-season testing and markers,” Lingard told Niche Sports.

“Then they all come back in Monday 13th to get six or seven weeks in before Christmas. The ones over in the Pacific Championship playing for Fiji and PNG will be late back.

“Albert Vete and Jacob Miller are still contracted to the club and as things stand both are there next season. All our quota spots are filled and taken.

“Will there be any changes? That would depend on people potentially moving out as well as financial restraints and constrictions. That will be a movable thing between now and the start of the season.”

So it seems the club are open to letting the duo go before the new season in order to bring in further new signings for next season.

The Tigers would likely require a forward to replace Vete but beyond that it is unclear. The Tigers have already drafted in a new halfback in the shape of Rowan Milnes from Hull KR. They have also added to their spine with the arrival of Luke Hooley from Leeds.

But if Miller was to leave that would be both Miller and the now retired Gareth Widdop now departed from the club which would leave them a bit bare though Danny Richardson will be fit in 2024,
