Castleford sign Egodo

Castleford Tigers have signed 19-year old Tuoyo Egodo from Kingstone Press Championship team London Broncos.

The young outside back joins the Tigers on a two-year deal after spending three years with the Broncos Academy.

Egodo follows in the footsteps of many former London players to join Castleford over recent years.

In 2016, Egodo spent time with Hemel Stags where he had his first taste of first team Rugby League. He amassed nine appearances with the Stags, scoring one try.

Egodo said: “I’m extremely pleased to be signing for Castleford, a big club with a great fan base behind it! I feel like I have a lot to offer and can’t wait to get stuck in with the lads.

“I’m looking forward to the move up north and I’m very excited to see what lies ahead over the coming years.”

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said: “Tuoyo has come through the London system and looks a really exciting player for the future.

“He plays the game really physical and I’m really looking forward to see how he develops within our system.

“He is quick and strong with an ability to run straight over the top of people. He’s just come out of under 19s Rugby League but he is certainly one to keep an eye on and I’m delighted he has agreed to sign at the Tigers.”
