Hull swoop for Cas centre Thompson

Hull owner Adam Pearson has revealed the signing of Castleford centre Jordan Thompson.

Thompson, 22, came through the youth system at Castleford, making his debut against St Helens back in 2009.

He joins a growing list of former Tigers at the KC Stadium, including Joe Westerman and Joe Arundel.

Pearson said: “We have already signed Jacob Miller for the 2014 season and added Mickey Paea, a stand-out Super League player, for next season.

“We are also pleased to announce Jordan Thompson from Castleford who, although only 22, has played close to 100 Super League games and was much coveted by other top Super League clubs.”

Pearson now plans to add two forwards and another outside back to Peter Gentle’s squad, but is prepared to wait until the end of the World Cup to make decisions.

“Our plan is to bring three more players in, an outside back, front rower and probably a back rower as well.

“We will keep our powder dry on the forwards until the World Cup as we feel to have no quota or cap space available when so much new talent will be on show would be a mistake.”

Thompson has scored nine tries in 25 appearances for the Tigers this season.
