Rovers set to keep Tigers starlet
Castleford Tigers have extended Calum Turner's loan spell with Featherstone Rovers until the end of the season.
The highly-rated young full-back initially joined the Championship outfit on a one-month deal, but that has now been extended for the rest of this season to enable him to get more regular first-team action.
Tigers head coach Daryl Powell has insisted on a recall option should he be needed for his first team, but Featherstone Rovers general manager Steve Gill is delighted with the deal.
“We are pleased to have secured Callum here at the Rovers for the remainder of the 2019 season and although the Tigers can recall him if he's required by Daryl, the agreement means he will then return to Featherstone and no one else for the remainder of the season," he said.
“Calum has been really good for us in the four games he has played already, and seeing him mature by playing regularly here at the rovers can only benefit all parties.
"I would like to thank Jon (Wells) at the Tigers for agreeing to the loan extension."
