Cas fans are like an extra man, says Luke Gale

Castleford Tigers halfback Luke Gale is excited to play in front of a packed house at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle when Super League kicks off – saying Cas fans are like an extra man when they’re supporting the team.

Gale has made the switch across West Yorkshire from Bradford to the Tigers, and ahead of his Super League debut for the club, Gale was full of praise for the Tigers faithful that pack the ground out each and every week.

“I know it’s a cliche, but it’s like an extra man on the pitch,” Gale said.

“Cas is a real good club, it’s one big tight unit, the players are brilliant and the fans are massive. It’s family orientated as well, which is good.

“As I came out of the ground in my first game against Bradford you had fans coming up to you and saying well done. It’s good and like one big family really.”
