'All 14 clubs' want Gareth Ellis, claims agent

Gareth Ellis will decide by the end of this month which Super League club he will join when he returns to England at the end of this season.

The Test forward has had four very successful seasons with Wests Tigers in Sydney and his agent, David Howes, says that all 14 clubs here are interested in signing him.

Ian Millward is back in charge of Castleford at Huddersfield tonight, after three weeks' leave following the sudden death of his 19-year-old son. "I need to get back to normality," he said. "I need to do my job."

Leeds captain Kevin Sinfield has been passed fit to play tonight at Salford, where he needs 15 points to break Lewis Jones' career club record. Richard Moore comes in for Ryan Bailey, who has been banned for three matches for pushing the referee, Richard Silverwood, in last weekend's defeat of Warrington.
