Looking at the comings and goings in 2019, so far Powell has done what Ive hoped for a season.

The only player who could be described as a probable first 17 squad player is Minikin.


The rest wouldn't be near a starting 17.

He's been ruthless.
I remember Peter Small

i must agree every signing seems a step in the right direction i too would have liked to have kept Minikin

DP has cut hard with the squad and tbh, I don't know of a player not worth his place in the squad. I'm talking not of the new signings but the retained players.

One thing for certain we are extremely light in the 6/7 and anyone that thinks Pete or rankin are the answer to the back up can't have watched enough of us last year terrible at time.
We need two young half backs with potential who can progress and not rely on playing players out of position to plug gaps as Wells as let all other half backs go i presume he will announce a couple to replace them shortly...

He signed until 2021 so unless theres a clause in his contract we'd have to pay for him.

Most players at Championship clubs will have a release clause should a SL team come calling.

No. Rankin, Feki, Blair, Millington, Sene-Lafeo, Moors and Mata’utia currently take the seven non-fed quota spots.

When Wells took over recruitment he said it was his plan to invest in youth and start producing are own players
These things take time but lets hope in another two years time weve used the reserve grade as it was meant to be used and we have have as a minimum being able to produce players to the standard of Lilley and Frawley to use as reserve grade half backs save Wells having to search around for those type of players to sign

Castleford Tigers have no plans to bring in a replacement for Jamie Ellis.

As revealed in League Express last week, Ellis has left the West Yorkshire side to return to Hull Kingston Rovers. He has signed a one-year deal with Tony Smith’s side, and returns to the club he helped to win promotion back to Super League in 2017.

That departure, as well as the extra cap space Castleford generated as a result of Luke Gale’s exit to Leeds, has left many supporters wondering whether an extra pivot will be brought in to bolster their ranks in the halves.

But League Express has learned that there is no intention from the Tigers at this stage to go out and sign a halfback. They are happy with what they have got in that regard. Richardson is expected to form a dynamic, exciting pairing with Jake Trueman, while a number of players can also fill in at halfback if required.

Jordan Rankin is no stranger to the position, having operated there on many occasions in the past, while Peter Mata’utia, who is Rankin’s main rival for the fullback spot, is another who has played halfback previously in his Castleford career.

Paul McShane has also deputised there, as has versatile forward Grant Millington – leaving the Tigers content with their stock in the halves should any injury.

There is, however, the scope to do further business as the season rolls on as a result of Ellis’ departure. But for now, there will be no replacement. Ellis had an initial spell with the Tigers between 2012 and 2014 before returning to the club ahead of the 2018 campaign. He made 25 appearances for the Tigers during that spell, scoring 155 points.

“The club would like to thank Jamie for his contribution to the Tigers over the past two seasons,” Castleford director of rugby, Jon Wells, said.

“He leaves with our best wishes; and on a personal note I would like to add that Jamie has conducted himself with the utmost professionalism in what has been a difficult and uncertain few weeks for him and his family.

“The Tigers family wish him well in the next stage of his career.”

For a team that has struggled with Injuries last 2 seasons cas have taken a big gamble in terms of reducing squad size. Numbers can be same by promoting young kids but lot of experience gone.
