Greek Australian NRL player, Billy Tsikrikas, has signed a loan deal with English rugby league club Castleford Tigers until the end of the 2023 Super League season, as reported by Totalrl.
Tsikrikas, 28, will join Castleford Tigers on a loan from Sydney club, the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
Tsikrikas has spent his career playing in Australia and Greece, due to his Greek heritage.
