Batley have signed Castleford prop Daniel Fleming on a dual-registration deal for the 2013 season.
Tigers’ Head of Youth Development, Steve Gill, said: “At this stage in Daniel’s development, it is without doubt the best move for all parties. Daniel trained at Batley last season and made a big impression with the coach John Kear.
“He will be a great addition to their side and for us, playing in the Championship will serve to improve him as a player and offer invaluable match-day experience. We hope to see him impressing in a Tigers shirt in the forthcoming season.”
