Sneyd joins Tigers


13th September 2013

Castleford Tigers have confirmed the signing of stand-off Marc Sneyd on a season-long loan from Salford City Reds.

The 22-year-old is joining the Tigers for the 2014 season as part of the deal that took Rangi Chase to the Salford City Stadium.

Sneyd, who played in all but three of the Reds' 29 matches this year, becomes Castleford's fourth signing in as many days following the recruitment of former Hull FC scrum-half Brett Seymour and London Broncos pair Luke Dorn and Scott Wheeldon.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: "I am really pleased to have signed Marc Sneyd for next season.

"He is a quality player with the added benefit of an outstanding left-foot kicking game.

"He will add to the depth and quality of our option within the squad moving into next season."

Sneyd said: "I'm really looking forward to joining Castleford Tigers next season.

"It's a big one for the club next year and I'm aiming to make a significant contribution to our goal of reaching the top eight and then hopefully have a good run in the play-offs."
