Alex Foster Signs with Castleford

Free Agent Alex Foster has signed a trial basis contract with the Castleford Tigers

Foster, 23, originally signed with the Bradford Bulls on a 2-year deal for the 2017 season. But, a free agent after the Bulls went into administration.

Fosters trial basis contract is expected to be turned into a 2-year deal once Foster recovers from a hernia operation that is expected to keep him off the field for another 3-5 weeks, but the Castleford Tigers are excited at the capture of the talented young forward who also has the ability to play in the centres.

Foster had a strong season at the Broncos where he made 20 appearances and scored 11 tries in the 2016 season.
