Castelford have confirmed the signing of Tyla Hepi for 2020.
The prop forward, who is the son of former Tiger Brad, makes the switch to The Jungle from Toulouse, where his performances have earned plenty of plaudits.
He joins the club on a one-year deal, though Castleford have a further one-year option for 2021.
Cas boss Daryl Powell said: “Tyla is a quality young prop who I’m absolutely confident the fans will love. His dad played for the club and he has the same attitude as him.
“He will take Mitch Clark’s place in the squad and will fill it with commitment, dedication and desire.
“He is a tough defender and carries with real impact.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing him play in our great colours next season.
