Castleford sign Ben Davies on loan from Wigan Warriors

Castleford Tigers

Castleford Tigers have signed prop forward Ben Davies on loan from Wigan.

The 21-year-old arrives on an initial one-month deal after the Tigers lost props Nick Fozzard and Jacob Emmitt to injury against Wigan on Wednesday.

Former England Under-18 international Davies has made five substitute appearances in Super League.

Davies, who is out of contract at the end of the season, is the second signing in a week for Cas after fellow prop Rob Parker joined last Friday.

Davies joined Wigan's academy from the Leigh Easts junior club and made his Super League debut last season.

He has also played in the Championship for Widnes and Barrow on a dual contract basis.
