Tigers Sign Top Youngster

Castleford have signed 16 year old Andy Kain in the face of strong competition from some of their Super League rivals. A very promising half back, Andy has been starring with the Tiger's Junior Academy side but has now signed on professional terms. Andy joined the Tigers from local junior side Smawthorne Panthers. He has played for the England Schools side and is also one of the members of the Rugby League's Elite Link programme. The Tigers Junior Academy coach Dean Sampson said, "Andy is a very exciting player with lots of pace and has an exceptional kicking game. He has all the attributes to go to the top."
