Huby rewarded with new Cas deal
Friday 18 March 2011
Castleford's in-form prop, Craig Huby, has agreed a new contract to keep him at the club for another three years. Huby is already the Tigers' longest-serving player, having made his debut as a 16-year-old in 2003.
He has produced his best rugby yet during Cas's unbeaten start to the season and, with his current deal due to run out at the end of the year, the club has moved quickly to tie him down.
"He'll be the cornerstone of our pack for many years," said his coach, Terry Matterson.
Joe Mellor is in line to make his second debut in a week at Huddersfield tonight. The Wigan half-back has been recalled from his loan at Harlequins, for whom he made his first appearance against St Helens last weekend.
Mellor goes straight into the squad for the Galpharm because of an injury to Paul Deacon. As well as long-term injuries to Pat Richards and Stuart Fielden, Wigan are also without the suspended Joel and Sam Tomkins, plus Martin Gleeson, whose future with the club remains shrouded in uncertainty.
