The Wigan scrum-half Luke Robinson, who failed to make the team for the Challenge Cup final, has joined Super League strugglers Castleford.

The highly rated 19-year-old, who played in Wigan's Grand Final defeat in October and the first seven games of this season before losing his place, moved to the Jungle on loan, initially for a month, and will make his debut in Sunday's crucial relegation encounter with Salford.

Robinson is a temporary replacement for the former Great Britain scrum-half Ryan Sheridan, who is expected back in July after shoulder surgery. Castleford are also expected to sign the New Zealand hooker or half-back Motu Tony, who was released by Brisbane last week.

The St Helens winger Dom Feaunati, who was placed on report for an alleged high tackle during the Challenge Cup final, has been told he has no case to answer. He seemed to catch the Wigan centre Kevin Brown with a swinging arm after coming on as a first-half substitute.
