Castleford’s Kirk Dixon enjoyed the passing the milestone of 1,000 career points during the Tigers’ 46-34 win over Bradford on Sunday.
Dixon, 29, went into the match needing just six points to bring up the landmark, and reached it when he successfully converted Adam Milner‘s first-half try in front of the Wheldon Road End.
The winger has now racked up 1,012 points – 976 for Cas (80 tries and 328 goals) with the remaining 36 points coming during his period with Hull FC (2004-2006) – and Dixon acknowledged the support of his team-mates.
“I didn’t know I was reaching the total until the day before the game,” Dixon admitted on the club’s official website.
“It’s nice to get the personal landmarks, but you can’t do it without your team around you – so I owe the team a great deal of gratitude.”
