A towering presence for the Tigers, Craig is considered by many to have been a shoe-in for England selection in 2011, had it not been for a fractured knee cap which kept him out of the game for exactly a year.
2013 was Craig's 11th campaign with the club, and aged just 26, Craig is the club's longest serving player. He celebrated his testimonial on Boxing Day, in a 30-30 draw at home to Halifax.
Craig's senior debut came against Leeds at Headingley just days after his 16th birthday in 2003, and within a couple of years he had established himself as a regular in the senior squad, a position he has maintained.
Having won that regular first grade spot in the 2005 NL season, Craig was a key player with some strong performances and a tally of 222 points from 85 goals and 13 tries.
He backed up that form in the 2006 Super League season but was unlucky with injuries in our second promotion winning campaign in 2007.
However, back once again in the top flight he had a strong and consistent season in 2008 and in 2009 he was again one of the squad's most consistent performers.
A Great Britain Academy player, Craig is both a strong runner and tackler and also a more than useful goal kicker.
In March 2011, Craig signed a new three-year extension to his contract that will keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2014 season. In April of the same year, Craig suffered a fractured patella (knee cap), which led to him being out for the rest of the season.
He was an ever-present last season, scoring four tries.
