Castleford Tigers have signed ex-Melbourne Storm winger Denny Solomona from London Broncos on a two-year deal starting in November.

The 20-year-old, who has scored seven tries in 16 games for relegated London this season, becomes the club’s third signing for 2015 alongside his former Melbourne colleagues Junior Moors and Ben Roberts.

Solomona said: “The move came about through Daryl Powell. He asked me what my plans were for next year, and thought it would be a good opportunity to bring me in alongside Junior Moors.

“The way the club is run attracted me. Castleford have a good fan base, and they are regarded as the loudest in the competition by some, so it is good to get fans behind you when you play.

“I spoke to Luke Dorn and he said the club was run well, so that attracted me there too. Everyone is professional and does their job, which is what you want.”

Powell added: “Denny has really impressed me this season in what has been a difficult year for the Broncos.

“His speed and strength alongside his ability to play in a number of back line positions will make him an invaluable member of our squad over the coming seasons.”
