Davies joins Tigers on loan


Wigan prop Ben Davies has joined Castleford on a one-month loan deal and is likely to be named in the Tigers squad for Sunday’s home game against Bradford.

Speaking about the news, Head Coach Michael Maguire said: “This is a good opportunity for Ben to gain some vital first team experience in Super League with Castleford which will benefit both the player and the Wigan Club.

“We have a good relationship with Terry Matterson and the Tigers and are more than happy for Ben to join them on loan.”

Ben added: “I am really looking forward to this chance to play some Super League Football. Chris Tuson spent some time on loan with Castleford last season and really benefitted from the experience and hopefully I can do the same.”

Meanwhile second row forward Jonny Walker has joined Co-operative Championship Club Barrow Raiders on Dual Registration and could play in their home game with Halifax at Craven Park on Saturday.
