The poacher supreme joins Castleford on a three-year deal from Warrington Wolves and will be bringing his electric pace and slick interceptions to The Mend-A-Hose Jungle!

Mamo’s professional career began in the NRL at Newcastle Knights where he spent two seasons between 2014 and 2016. During 2016 the centre made the trip across the world to join Huddersfield Giants before signing a deal at Warrington Wolves. The 27-year-old scored a hat-trick of tries in his first appearance for the Wire and went on to win the Challenge Cup Final the following season in 2019.

The Gosford-born player needed no introduction to the opposition’s try line last year bagging 17 tries in all competitions. Perhaps the finest year of his professional career, becoming known for his 90-metre bursts and rapid support.

Mamo is one of eight new editions to the Fords’ squad for 2022 and he will be hoping to start the season as he tremendously ended the last with Warrington. The #4 has shared his excitement of playing quick, dynamic rugby specifically alongside the likes of Kenny Edwards, Paul McShane, and Niall Evalds.

Following Warrington’s road to the play-off semi-finals, Mamo joined pre-season a week later and has settled back into Yorkshire well. The Aussie marked his first game in Cas colours with a try against York City Knights in this year’s pre-season.

An exciting prospect for 2022 and a danger to any defensive line in the competition.
