Castleford Tigers have signed Warrington's prolific tryscoring winger Joel Monaghan on a two-year deal.

The 33-year-old Australian, who averaged a try a match in his 145 appearances for the Wolves, had been linked with Catalans Dragons and Salford after being released from the final year of his contract at Warrington at the end of the 2015 season.

Monaghan, a former player with Sydney Roosters and Canberra who won State of Origin honours with New South Wales and played for Australia in the 2008 World Cup final, was captain of Warrington in his final year at the Halliwell Jones Stadium.

"I'm really excited. This is a team that are challenging for trophies and top fours. Cas are a very well coached side and they are a very good bunch of blokes. I know a couple of the guys but I'm looking forward to pre-season and getting to know the rest of them."


"Joel Monaghan is a high quality and experienced winger to add to our backline. He is a proven tryscorer with good leadership skills and I expect him to help drive our standards in 2016."

26-year-old Riley, who was a member of the Wolves' Grand Final team in October, moved to Wakefield after being dropped by Warrington after their opening home defeat of the 2014 Super League season.

Riley was ineligible for the Wildcats' Challenge Cup tie against Leeds last Sunday but is set to make his fifth appearance for the club against the Rhinos at Headingley on Friday night.
