News reaches Rugby League Books of the launch of Phil Hodgson’s latest book 20 Legends: Castleford Rugby League.

The event, which took place in Bridge Arts Centre in Castleford, attracted a mix of current and former Tigers heroes.

Karl Waddicor, of publishers Vertical Editions, said: “It turned out to be a superb event, with nine of the 20 legends covered in the book turning up to meet fans.”

Author Phil Hodgson promised plenty of “talking points” during an interview with Rugby League Books.

And his selections are bound to get fans arguing about Castleford’s greatest ever players.
