“Castleford Tigers can confirm that Albert Vete has joined League One outfit Doncaster RLFC on a season-long loan.

“The prop has run out for the Tigers on six occasions this campaign and now will link up with Richard Horne’s squad with immediate effect.

“The Tigers have a 14-day call-back option on the prop, and we would like to wish Albie all the best during his stint at the Dons.”
