Foster earns permanent Castleford deal

Former Leeds forward Alex Foster has signed a deal with Castleford until the end of the season.

Foster, 23, joined the Tigers on trial after Bradford, who he had joined from London Broncos at the end of last season, were liquidated in the winter.

He said: “I’m really excited to be at the Tigers, it means my two months trial here was so worth it. 

“I’m really excited that the club have offered me a contract and this now allows me to crack on with the lads and hopefully work towards making my first appearance. 

“I’ve settled in really well here and it’s great environment to be in.”

Foster, who played for Featherstone on loan in 2015, was named in Daryl Powell’s 19-man squad for the win against Leeds earlier in the season.

Powell said: “Alex Foster is a player who I have always been impressed with and after a brief trial with us I am confident he will play a role within a successful season for the club. 

“He is a strong ball carrier and a tough defender. He will add to an already strong pack, alongside this he can also play in the centres, and this flexibility will be invaluable as we move through the season.”

Castleford are next in action on Thursday night, when they travel to Wigan.
