The 24-year-old Queenslander has spent most of his career with the Sydney club Cronulla, but had a year in rugby union with the New South Wales Waratahs and also played in the Wallabies' sevens side.

He has agreed a one-year contract, much to the pleasure of the new Tigers coach, Terry Matterson. "I'm very pleased to add some experience to our back line, which is pretty young," Matterson said.

Castleford are still looking in Australia for a player to broaden their options at half-back, but he will have to be exempt from the quota, which rules out Cronulla's Adam Dykes.

The Australian Test scrum-half, Craig Gower, has been told by his club Penrith that he has a case to answer over allegations of drunken behaviour at a charity golf day. Gower is accused, among other things, of accosting the 17-year-old daughter of the former Australian Test player, Wayne Pearce.
