Gregan’s debut try in vain for Tigers

AUSSIE signing James Grehan scored on his Castleford Tigers debut in yesterday’s (Sunday) pre-season game at York City Knights.

However, it wasn’t enough to deny Championship outfit York a 34-14 victory at Huntington Stadium.

The Tigers, fielding mainly an under 20s team, finished well beaten after trailing 22-0 at half-time in the annual Paul Higgins Memorial Trophy match.

Second rower Jordan Thompson (pictured), who had an excellent game, and winger Rich Lipori were Castleford’s other try scorers. Ben Reynolds kicked one goal.
