Former Rugby League Star Behind Bars

Ex Castleford and Wakefield Trinity Star is behind bars after being charged with rape and burglary.

The 26-year old was behind bars over the Christmas and New Year period and will appear in court on Wednesday to face his charges.

Owen had his contract torn up by Wakefield, after a car crash in which he and two other players were injured after their motor hit a tree in October.

Owen played 121 games for Castleford Tigers before making the switch to Wakefield in 2014 where he made a further 45 appearances for the club.
