Daniel Smith on the market

Castleford Tigers could lose Daniel Smith, with the forward’s future yet to be resolved.

The former Huddersfield and Wakefield man is off-contract at the end of the season and, although the Tigers are keen to keep the 27-year-old, a deal has yet to be agreed and they now face competition from Hull Kingston Rovers, who have shown interest in the ball-playing forward.

Smith joined Castleford midway through 2019 after leaving the Giants and signing a contract that represented good value for the Tigers.

However, after making 26 appearances in less than 12 months, his market value has increased and that has left the Tigers in a position where they may be forced to lose him to another club.

The Robins are looking to bolster their pack and have identified Smith as a potential addition who could help them next season, while reports have also linked Leeds with a move.

He is one of several players off-contract and in talks with the club heading into 2021.

Mike McMeeken, Grant Millington, James Clare, Matt Cook and Calum Turner are among those off-contract and all are currently in talks with the club, with further activity expected this week.
