Castleford Tigers forward Matt Cook has signed a 12-month contract extension which will keep him at the Betfred Super League club until the end of 2020.

The 32-year-old former Bradford Bulls, Hull KR and London Broncos prop is in his second spell with the Tigers, having previously spent a brief loan stay at the club in 2008.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “I’m delighted that Matt Cook has agreed to extend his contract.

“He has played some outstanding rugby league for us over the last few years and his form so far this season tells us he’s playing some of the best rugby of his career.

“I’m really looking forward to continuing to work with him this and next season.”

Cook said: “Castleford is a great club that I have been part of for almost five years now. I have made some great friends here and, under the boss, have without doubt played my best rugby.

“I am still itching for more success and silverware and I believe being a Castleford player gives me the best opportunity to achieve that.”
