On Clark’s departure from Castleford, director of rugby Jon Wells said: “Mitch has left the Tigers to pursue another short-term playing opportunity.

“Mitch has recently found first team football hard to come by at the Tigers and all parties felt a move away would enable him to do what rugby league players like doing best.

“He’s been a great bloke and a big contributor at the club over the last 18 months and we would like to wish him all the very best for the rest of this year and as a Wigan player from next season.”
