Luke Gale tore his Achilles tendon in training

Castleford will seek salary-cap relief to give themselves the option of signing a replacement if England scrum-half Luke Gale is ruled out for the entire 2019 season.

The 30-year-old, who was Super League’s Man of Steel in 2017, tore an Achilles tendon in a freak incident towards the end of a training session on Saturday and is booked in for surgery on Thursday.

Tigers rugby director Jon Wells confirmed the club’s worst fears at their pre-season media day in Pontefract, where Gale – who is expected to miss the entire campaign – was a noticeable absentee.
