Kieran Gill First Team Centre One of Super League’s most exciting young talents, Gill joins Thunder on a year-long loan from parent club Castleford Tigers. A free-scoring 22-year-old, Gill has already made his Newcastle Thunder debut having played for the club away to Bradford this summer and will bring further attacking prowess into the team for the new campaign. Having rejoined Tigers in 2015 Gill earned a senior contract after impressing in the club’s Under 19 setup and made his Super League debut in 2017 against St Helens. In what should have been the highlight of his career to date, a serious knee injury required a full reconstruction and kept Kieran out of the game for 10 months. Having recovered, his 2018 season saw Gill make try scoring Super League appearances for Cas against Hull KR, Salford Red Devils and Wigan Warriors, as well as a further three starts for Oldham Roughyeds in League 1. With his time out of the game seemingly having no effect on his ability to be a serious attacking threat, Thunder are hoping a settled season with one club will allow Gill to progress further and play a key role in the club’s push for promotion.
