Castleford’s Mr Versatile

The 30-year-old started his career as a hooker before transitioning to loose forward; but he is now learning a new position in the second-row under Lee Radford. Milner told The Yorkshire Post: “I’ve fitted in quite a few places whether it be nine, loose forward or even the back-row. I think I’m capable of playing all three. It’s been quite nice to learn a complete new position.”

Return to pre-season

Most people have gone back to work today following the festive period, and it is the same for players.

Bateman told Wigan Today: “It’s a team sport, it’s about all of us and not individuals. We are part of a family and win as a team. Every day so far, I’ve driven back into training and been excited to be back alongside the boys just playing rugby.”
