Gateshead Thunder have signed hooker Andrew Henderson from Super League side Castleford Tigers.

The 29-year-old leaves the Tigers after four seasons in which he captained them to National One title wins in 2005 and 2007, making 103 appearances.

A Scotland international, Henderson has seven caps and will bring Super League experience to the Thunder pack.

The move comes after Castleford re-signed hooker Ryan Hudson from Huddersfield Giants earlier this month.

Thunder will begin their first season back in National League One after winning the 2008 championship.
