Castleford have signed Australian utility player Damien Blanch in an effort to re-ignite their flagging push for promotion to Super League.
Blanch, who can play either in the second row or at threequarter, could feature against Halifax on Sunday.
"Damien is very keen to make it in the game over here to the extent that he
is subsidising this spell with us himself," said Tigers coach Dave Woods.
Castleford have lost three of their last five National League One matches.
