CASTLEFORD Tigers have launched an investigation into the behaviour of 21-year-old full-back Richard Owen (pictured).

The club say they have called an “internal hearing to address disciplinary issues”.

The hearing takes places today (Wednesday) and involves club officials, the player and his agent.

Owen made a try-scoring debut for the Tigers in the Northern Rail Cup in 2007 and signed a contract extension in 2011.

He has been handed the number one jersey by new coach Ian Millward for 2012.

Castleford say no further comment will be made until the matter is resolved.
