Posted: Wednesday 20th November 2019 - 6:00 PM
One of Castleford Tigers squad additions for the 2020 season, Sosaia Feki, has landed in the UK and is set to join pre-season on Monday.
The former Cronulla Sharks man arrived in the UK on Tuesday and on Wednesday went to go and meet some of the club’s sponsors including main partners; CBR Engineering & Mend-A-Hose and Feki’s own player sponsor for the 2020 season, Trinity House Orthodontics Wakefield.
Born in Auckland, Feki first came through the ranks at New Zealand Warriors and represented the Junior Kiwis before switching to Cronulla Sharks where he played for seven years.
Now the 28-year-old joins Daryl Powell’s men on a three-year deal and is sure to excite the faithful Castleford supporters with this pace on the wing.
Speaking to castlefordtigers.com, Feki said: “I’m pretty excited, I was nervous at the start but I’m here and I’m looking forward to it. It’s a new challenge I’d been at Cronulla for seven years and Castleford gave me an offer and I’ve taken it with both hands and it’s a new challenge that I’m looking forward to!”

On Saturday, 30th November the entire First Team and coaching staff will be participating in the Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge to raise funds for the club's charity partner The Prince of Wales Hospice, fans will be able to bid for the first Tigers signed shirt by Sosaia Feki on the club's official eBay account and the money from the winning bid will go into the fundraising efforts. The shirt will be on auction in due course.
Castleford Tigers fans can see Sosaia Feki in action at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle with a 2020 Season Ticket which will allow access to see FIVE Tigers teams at the Castleford ground.
