CASTLEFORD TIGERS have signed London Broncos duo Scott Moore and Mike McMeeken and seen Grant Millington and James Clare extend their stays at Wheldon Road.

Ex-England hooker Moore, 26, arrives on a two-year deal at the end of the season having made his name at St Helens, featured with Huddersfield Giants and, then, in the NRL at North Queensland Cowboys last term.

He also enjoyed a successful loan spell at Castleford in 2008 and is a replacement for Warrington Wolves-bound Daryl Clark.

London team-mate McMeeken, the 20-year-old second-row, joins on the same length of contract as one of Super League’s brightest young talents.

Australian loose forward Millington, meanwhile, has agreed to sign a four-year deal, a huge boost for the club given his stellar form this term.

Homegrown winger Clare has committed until the end of 2016 with an option of a further two years.

Castleford have also confirmed Jamie Ellis will leave at the end of the season with the scrum-half/hooker expected to follow Craig Huby to Huddersfield Giants.

Bradford Bulls have recruited a third player from Queensland Cup side Mackay Cutters, utility-back Chris Ulugia joining on a two-year deal and following team-mates Dave Peterson and Karl Davies at Odsal.
