    The legal battle over Denny Solomona's contract could impact both rugby codes in a way the Bosman ruling affected football, according to a prominent sports lawyer.

    Despite having two years remaining on his contract with Super League club Castleford Tigers, Solomona retired from rugby league and subsequently joined Premiership rugby union side Sale Sharks on a three-year deal.

    On Sunday, the 23-year-old made his debut in Sale's 24-10 European Champions Cup defeat by Saracens.

    Castleford are taking legal action "as a last resort", with the Tigers suing for damages against Sale, Solomona and Andy Clarke - his agent - at the High Court in Leeds.

    The case, Tigers chairman Steve Gill said, is "for the integrity of all sports, including, of course, rugby union clubs".

    Good to see - a contract's a contract !

    Castleford Tigers rugby club chief executive Steve Gill was "viciously" assaulted during a town-centre attack, the club has said.

    The Betfred Super League leaders said the attack happened in Bridge Street, Castleford, early on Friday.

    A statement from the club thanked emergency services, who it said were called to the scene and responded quickly.

    A 58-year old man has been arrested and remains in police custody.

    There was an out-of-court settlement, by the way, by Sale in favour of Castleford in the Denny Solomona saga, if you didn't know.

    Castleford Tigers and Newcastle Thunder have linked up on dual-registration terms for the 2018 campaign.

    League 1 side Thunder will join Championship outfit Halifax as a club where players from the Tigers can gain match fitness and game time by playing for the respective lower league teams.

    Castleford used Newcastle’s Kingston Park stadium as a venue for a training camp midway through the 2017 season.
