Matthew Shaw suggesting Cas in talks...
Could be expensive.
Upgrade on ours but then looking at him at Wire, will he be worth it?
Thoughts?

Castleford Tigers are in talks with Gareth Widdop over a potential move to the club next season. Rugby League Live understands discussions have taken place between the club and the England international, who is off-contract at Warrington at the end of the season.

Definitely better than what we have but at 33 we will only get 2 years out of him realistically.

I agree OCL. Like I said on text, why can’t we find a French, a Field or a Lino??

Wouldn't mind this signing at all tbh especially if it's a year deal to get us some immediate improvement in the halves then either he proves his worth and stays or we have that extra year to scour the market for younger talent. Obviously if we offer him a long term deal or silly money then it's bad business

He would be a big improvement on Trueman and Richardson that's for sure.

That would be madness from Cas but I don't believe it will be a 5 Year contract.

As a short term stop gap i'm fine with this. Still decent, would complement Miller well and a pretty good goal kicker. Keeps a quota spot free as well.

The only problem I’d have with this is the wage demands. He won’t come for anything less than big money. And I’m not sure he deserves it.

I’ve always thought his best rugby was played at FB and was over-rated in the halves.

However

There aren’t many quality halves in the market over here. So ultimately it would all depend on the terms of the deal - I wouldn’t want to be breaking the bank on him - But I’d also take him for the right money for 2 years.

It is an interesting thread, but I just can't see it.
For him or us in reality.

Probably a classic case of his agent saying someone else is interested just to try and get a reasonable (improved) offer from his current employer.
