Castleford Tigers prop and proud father George Griffin has become a best-seller author by penning a successful children's book, Harvey Hippo Finds His Talent. 



In this interview with RL Cares Transition Manager Francis Stephenson, George chats about his journey to publishing success and explains why rugby league players should not hesitate to try their hand at unorthodox second careers involving something they are passionate about.


George's book is available to purchase at Amazon -


I'd say to any player that if you think you can do something, and can make something work, just do it. We are all rugby players but we're also just people who have different interests, the same as people involved in any other line of work.





"Don't limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do.

You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe you can achieve"
