Castleford Tigers and York City Knights have confirmed a dual registration agreement that will be effective for the 2020 season.
The agreement will see players given the game time that they wouldn’t perhaps get in the first team. It is also handy for players recovering from injury.
The Knights are known for giving young players their chance, and this agreement will see that philosophy go further.
“It’s a positive step for us to link up with Castleford,” said Knights Head Coach James Ford. “I’m confident we can build an excellent relationship where both clubs benefit on and off the field.”
Castleford Director of Rugby Jon Wells added: “With this partnership and the return of the reserve grade system for next season, we can ensure playing opportunities right across all ages and experience levels.”
