GOSSIP: Cas closing in on Patrick

Castleford Tigers are thought to be closing in on Huddersfield star Larne Patrick.

The Wales international missed Huddersfield’s impressive victory over Warrington last week, and the 27-year-old is now set to make a move to the Tigers.

Daryl Powell has reportedly been in the market for a forward for some time, with Cas also rumoured with a move for current free agent Danny Tickle and even Brett Ferres before his move to the Leeds Rhinos.

Whether Patrick’s departure would pave a way for Huddersfield to sign Tickle remains unknown, but head coach Paul Anderson has publicly admitted he is keen on signing the 33-year-old.

Patrick spent last year on loan at Wigan but returned to the Giants this season.
