Castleford release Seymour

Castleford have released former Hull FC half-back Brett Seymour from his trial period at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Seymour, 29, leaves having failed to make a Super League appearance for the Tigers, and head coach Daryl Powell said the decision was mutual.

“We sat down and had a chat with Brett and came to a mutual decision that we would release him from his trial period,” said Powell.

“Our season has started pretty well and with Marc Sneyd, Liam Finn and Jamie Ellis in front of him, it left him fourth in line.

“I’m hoping that he will get a club in the near future and we wish him all the best.”

Seymour began his career in Queensland with Brisbane in 2002, and also had spells with Cronulla and NZ Warriors before first coming to Super League with the Airlie Birds in 2012.

Last year, during a battle with poor form and depression, he attempted to take his own life. After taking a combination of alcohol and sleeping pills, he drove towards the Humber Bridge with the intention of driving straight off, but instead he crashed into two parked cars.

He has since spent time in the Sporting Chance clinic set up by former England footballer Tony Adams.
