Luke Gale could miss the entire 2019 Super League season through injury

The Rugby Football League has confirmed it has discretion to grant salary cap relief to Castleford.

The Tigers, who are close to the £2m wage ceiling, are considering submitting a request for relief after resigning themselves to being without England half-back Luke Gale for most of, if not all, the 2019 season with a ruptured Achilles.

The governing body says they can offer clubs dispensation “in certain circumstances” but Castleford coach Daryl Powell will first assess alternative options within his squad when he takes them to Lanzarote on Thursday for the club’s warm-weather training camp.
