Wigan target Castleford prop

Wigan Today are reporting that the Warriors are interested in signing Castleford prop Mitch Clark for next season.

The 26-year-old signed for two years at the Jungle in 2017 but that deal will expire in October.

Off-contract players can now hold contractual discussions with other clubs for 2020 after the transfer window opened last Wednesday.

Wigan are keen to bolster their pack and club chairman Ian Lenagan revealed last week the club are actively looking for new additions.

Clark has had a steady rise to the top and has spent much of his career playing in the Championship for Doncaster, Bradford and Featherstone.

However his move to the Tigers allowed the no-nonsense forward to showcase his abilities and now he is on the radar of the reigning Super League champions.

Speaking today, Castleford boss Daryl Powell said: “I’ve heard those rumours but Mitch is a player that I really like so we’ll definitely try to retain him.”

Son of former top division player Trevor Clark, Mitch was born while his Kiwi father was playing for Bradford Northern in the early 1990’s.

And despite spending almost his entire life in England, he followed his father’s heritage by representing the Junior Kiwis in 2013 and New Zealand Māori two years ago.
