Mitch Clark has joined Castleford Tigers from Hull Kingston Rovers on a two-year deal.
The contract sees the 24-year-old remain a Tiger until the end of the 2019 campaign.
Clark came through the Academy at NRL side Penrith Panthers and was a star player in their Under-20s Holden Cup Grand Final triumph back in 2013.
The Pontefract-born prop joined Doncaster in 2015 and impressive performances for the Dons saw him earn a move to Bradford Bulls, making over 20 appearances for the Bulls in 2016 before financial troubles at Odsal left Clark without a contract.
In 2017, Clark has featured in Hull KR’s promotion back to the top-flight but he has decided to opt for a new challenge in joining Castleford.
And Tigers head coach Daryl Powell admitted that he has been a keen admirer of the no-nonsense prop forward for quite a while.
He said: “Mitch Clark is a player I have known for a long time, having discussed his future with him three years ago.
“I’m delighted he signed for Castleford at this time as I believe he has a big future with us.
“He is an all action front-rower who has great leg speed when carrying the ball and real intent when defending.
“I welcome Mitch to the club and look forward to working with him.”
