Castleford are expected to unveil Terry Matterson’s successor tomorrow and Love Rugby League understands that Leigh coach Ian Millward has landed the role.
The 51-year-old’s last stint in Super League was with the Wigan Warriors until he was sacked in 2006. However he has spent the last two years at Championship outfit Leigh, turning them into one of the most formidable sides outside of the top flight.
The Australian was a front-runner for the Salford post when it became vacant earlier in the season, however on that occasion he missed out to Matt Parish.
The Tigers will be holding a press conference tomorrow where it is expected that Millward will be officially announced as the new head coach.
