Craig Lingard reveals desire to make two loanees permanent Castleford Tigers players after strong Super League 2024 showing

CRAIG LINGARD has revealed that he wants to see Innes Senior stay at Castleford Tigers “for a lot longer than this season.”

Senior, whose twin brother Louis has also joined the Tigers until the end of the 2024 Super League season from Hull KR, signed for Castleford on a season-long loan from Huddersfield Giants ahead of this year.

With Elliot Wallis going to the John Smith’s Stadium as part of the deal, Innes Senior has settled into life at The Jungle seamlessly, registering ten tries during the Super League campaign so far.

About a week earlier, Senior scored two more tries in a 40-0 thrashing against the London Broncos. Following the game, Lingard stated that he wanted the winger to move permanently to Castleford.

According to Lingard, Innes “has needed that little bit of love and feeling that he is wanted somewhere, and he has that.”He is confident that he has earned the right to hold the left-wing position and that it is his own.

“It’s a really strong edge down there with Alex Mellor and Sam Wood who both have been playing well and Jacob Miller being decent down there too. We want him to stay for a lot longer than this season.”

“That left edge has been strong all year.”

In last week’s pre-match press conference ahead of Castleford’s clash against St Helens, Lingard spoke of his desire to keep both Innes and Senior longer than their loan deals.

“Wee are talking about the Seniors. Innes is out of contract, Louis is still at Hull KR but hopefully we will get them next year.”
