Castleford Tigers have confirmed the signing of Jordan Turner from Huddersfield Giants for the 2021 season.
Turner brings plenty of experience to the Mend-A-Hose Jungle with nearly 300 top-flight appearances to his name and is expected to provide greater competition and depth in the centre position for the 2021 campaign, although he’s also able to cover in the halves and at loose forward.
Reacting to the move, Turner said: “I didn’t have to think too much about making the decision after speaking to Daryl (Powell) and I’m really happy to be here.
“I’m excited about the coming season, the squad that we have got, and I think we can really push on at the higher end of the table at the end of next year.
“There’s some really good players here in the backline at Cas and I want to come in and add to that, there is some players that have been around for quite a few years and although I’ve been about a bit and played a lot of games I am still looking to learn off other people.
Head Coach Daryl Powell added: “Once we realised that Cheyse Blair was definitely going to be a back-rower for us, we were short in the centre and I think this is an important signing to stiffen us up competition wise.
“If you look across our squad we will have strength and depth in every position which is something which I think potentially we didn’t have last year at half-back and centre, areas where we got caught out a bit. So, Jordan will be an important signing for us.”
