Dewsbury move for young Castleford outside back

Brad Graham Castleford

Dewsbury have announced the signing of outside back Brad Graham from Castleford for the 2022 season.

Graham, who can play either at centre or on the wing, is a product of the Tigers’ academy. He made his first-team debut in 2020 against Hull FC.

The 20-year-old made two further appearances in 2021 against Catalans and Huddersfield. The latter of which saw him score his first try for the club.

Speaking to the club website, Graham said:“I am very pleased to have signed for the Rams, it is a local club to myself and has a great history so I am really looking forward to getting stuck in and finding my feet within the team and the club.

“The decision was easy to be honest. Once Lee Greenwood got in touch, everything about the club and its ambitions attracted me. It also fits with my lifestyle change of going self employed and playing part time which is great..

“I am looking forward to making my mark on the Championship and pushing my way into the team and competing hard to earn a place.

“I am excited to show everyone what I am about, the set up here is second to none and it is a great environment to be in.”

Graham adds competition

Rams Head Coach Lee Greenwood added: “I was surprised when I heard Brad had become available but we acted quickly to get him in.

“He adds real competition at wing and centre within our squad, much like Ollie Greensmith. But I believe he could end up as a quality back rower.

“Brad played for Dewsbury Moor as a junior and is a great fit. He knows a few of our current players already and they have all sang his praises. I am glad we have him on board.”
