Finn relishing full-time return at Castleford

Castleford halfback Liam Finn is delighted to be training full-time once again, as he looks forward to a return to Super League action in West Yorkshire.

The 30-year-old is set to make his return to top-flight rugby, after joining Daryl Powell’s side from neighbours Featherstone Rovers in the close season.

“It doesn’t really feel like I’m back in Super League, yet, because we haven’t played a league game,” Finn told Love Rugby League.

“I’ll be able to answer that question if I get ten games down the line, and I’m holding my own or doing well.

“The element that does make me feel like I’m back in Super League, though, is the full-time training.

“It’s certainly a refreshing change to be training through the day, and putting a lot of time into training, which I really enjoy.”

Finn previously starred in Super League over a decade ago, playing for hometown team Halifax, as well as a couple of games for current club Castleford.

He feels confident that he can cope with the leap in class, after being one of the Championship‘s top performers in recent years.

“I think there will always be that niggling thought about what the difference is going to be, once I step out on the field against Super League opposition.

“I don’t think anybody in this position would be thinking any differently. Until you’re in there, and seeing what it’s like, you can’t really say, ‘I’m going to do this, or I’m going to do that’.

“It’s not a worry, but it’s certainly in focus for me.”
