Dan Fleming joins Castleford on trial

Castleford have confirmed that prop Dan Fleming has joined the club on a one-month trial.

The 28-year-old had been at Halifax since 2018, making 62 appearances for the club. He has earned six caps for Wales.

Fleming said: “I’ve been looking for an opportunity to play again this season and I’ve been lucky enough that Daryl (Powell, Castleford coach) and the Tigers have given me that opportunity and I’m really looking forward to it.

“It’s like a second chance not only to play in 2020, which I didn’t think might come along, but also with Cas too, hopefully, I can train as hard as I can and fingers crossed something comes at the end of it. I’m looking to give all that I can, really.

“I came through the academy with Cas and was fortunate enough to make my Super League debut in 2013 with the Tigers. If I can get even one game towards the end of my trial I’d be really happy with that, I just have to knuckle down in training and see how we go, I’m just going to try and enjoy it.”

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “Dan’s been with Castleford before and I know he was wanting to have another crack in Super League after going really well in the Championship.

“I think with the amount of games that we are going to have I thought it was important we stiffen up our middle unit and give us some numbers.

“Dan’s a great kid and I know him from his previous time with the club and he’s improved and matured in the years since, I’m pleased to give him an opportunity.”
