Sculthorpe on season long loan to

Wigan can today confirm that Danny Sculthorpe, the 26 year old prop forward, will be going on a season long loan to Castleford Tigers during the 2006 season.

Coach Ian Millward said,

"There are two reasons why Danny is going on loan to Castleford. Firstly we must remain within the salary cap and also we have recruited several players for next season. We should also have the return of a number of players who were injured for most of last season, most of whom were forwards.We want Danny to play regular first team football and Castleford provides that opportunity. He is still contracted to us for the 2007 season and we hope to have him back in our side during that year."
