Ireland skipper Liam Finn will return to Super League in 2014 after being signed up Castleford.

The 30-year-old goalkicking half-back, who had brief spells in the top flight with Halifax and Wakefield, has linked up with the Tigers following his release by Featherstone.

"I'm flattered and extremely grateful that a great traditional club like Castleford has given me the opportunity to play in Super League again," said Finn.

"I didn't take my chance last time and it has been a long road back.

"I hope to pay that back to the club and the coaching staff with hard work and by proving to them - and to myself - that I am more than capable of being a quality Super League player for them and make the most of a second chance playing at the highest level."

Finn scored 1,484 points in his two spells at Featherstone, where he played under Castleford coach Daryl Powell.

"Liam Finn has been a stand-out performer in the Championship for the last four seasons," said Powell.

"He is an outstanding player in both half-back and hooker positions and will further enhance the quality of our competition in those positions.

"I am supremely confident he will do well in Super League as a result of his professional attitude and skill sets and I'm looking forward to working with him again here at Castleford Tigers."
