Wigan Warriors forward Sam Eseh Jr has joined Castleford Tigers on a two-week loan deal.

Sam joined Warriors in the off-season from Wakefield Trinity after loan spells at Barrow Raiders and Featherstone Rovers.

The move will provide the 20-year-old with some valuable game-time following his recovery from a hamstring injury.

Eseh played 30 minutes for Warriors’ Reserves in their 36-6 win against Castleford Tigers Reserves last Saturday.

Warriors Head Coach Matt Peet said: “Sam has recovered from his injury really well. He played 30 minutes for our Reserves and now needs game time at the highest possible level.

“Castleford will provide the perfect opportunity for him and we are looking forward to seeing him perform for them.”
