Castleford Tigers contracts: When every deal runs out

Lee Radford takes charge of Castleford Tigers for the first time in 2022, taking over much of a squad signed up by predecessor Daryl Powell.

Captain Paul McShane is tied down long-term but the only other player definitely contracted beyond the end of the 2023 season is one of their nine off-season recruits, Jake Mamo.

Nearly half of their squad are out of contract at the end of this coming season, including their two highest-profile halfbacks Danny Richardson and Jake Trueman, plus many of their top outside backs.

Here’s when every senior player’s contract is set to expire…
