Castleford Tigers sign Denny Solomona

Castleford Tigers has announced the signing of Denny Solomona from London Broncos on a two-year deal from the start of 2015.

The 20-year-old, who has scored seven tries in 16 games for the Broncos this season, will link up with the Tigers over the winter, and becomes the club’s third signing for next season alongside Junior Moors and Ben Roberts.

Solomona said: ““The move came about through Daryl Powell. He asked me what my plans were for next year, and thought it would be a good opportunity to bring me in alongside Junior Moors.

“The way the club is run attracted me. Castleford have a good fan base, and they are regarded as the loudest in the competition by some, so it is good to get fans behind you when you play.

“I spoke to Luke Dorn and he said the club was run well, so that attracted me there too. Everyone is professional and does their job, which is what you want.”

Castleford boss Daryl Powell commented: “ “Denny has really impressed me this season in what has been a difficult year for the Broncos.

“His speed and strength alongside his ability to play in a number of back line positions will make him an invaluable member of our squad over the coming seasons.”
