10 applicants for Castleford Tigers Head Coach role

Castleford Tigers are continuing their search for a new Head Coach.

We're progressing with our search for a new Head Coach. We have had a total of 10 applicants to date and we are busy assessing and meeting with them.

We thought long and hard about Stuart Raper's offer to work with Danny Orr until the end of the season, however we have decided not to go down that route. I think that the financial outlay that would have been required to bring Stuart over could be used more wisely on a long-term appointment.

We are still actively looking for a permanent Head Coach and will make a further announcement in due course."
