Gareth Ellis has revealed he would like to finish his career at Castleford – the club he supported as a kid.
Ellis, 30, started his career with Castleford’s rivals Wakefield, making more than 100 appearances for the Wildcats before similar service was given to Leeds Rhinos.
He told Australian magazine Rugby League Week: “Castleford? I’d love to go back to Castleford.
“It’s the team I grew up watching home and away. It’d be like my career played out perfectly. They’re going pretty good, yeah. They’re showing signs of improvement and they’ll have a new stadium in a year or two. It would be good.”
“… where all the best players were playing for that team and they’d be in the NRL. It probably will never work but it would be a fantastic franchise. That would be the ideal.
“With our game unable, at the moment, to challenge rugby union and soccer as a world game, it’d be worthwhile and it would be beneficial to England.”
