Gale heaps praise on Castleford forwards

Castleford Tigers half-back Luke Gale has insisted the club’s forwards are going under the radar – and he has attributed some of his impressive form to them this year.

Gale has enjoyed a strong first season at Castleford since joining from Bradford, and currently leads the League Express Albert Goldthorpe Medal table.

And he said that the Tigers forwards are a big part of why they do so well – and that he now feels fully integrated into the way the club play.

“I’ve been enjoying playing with our forward pack. I think it’s brilliant and doesn’t get the recognition it deserves,” he said.

“They’ve been unbelievable. The likes of Andy Lynch and Grant Millington just take us forward every single week and it’s easy to play off the back of that really.

“Coming from a new club I knew it was going to take a bit of time and we had quite a lot of new faces so it took a bit longer than we wanted really, but it’s clicked in now.

 “We finished fifth after the normal rounds and we’re looking for a top four finish.”
