Massey extends Castleford stay

Castleford Tigers forward Nathan Massey has agreed a new two-year contract which will keep him with the West Yorkshire club until the end of the 2021 season.

The 29-year-old one-club man has been with the Tigers since the age of 15 and has been involved in over 200 matches since making his debut in 2007.

Castleford coach Daryl Powell said: “He was in the last year of his deal and had a point to prove this year and that has shone through in the way that he’s played this season.

“He came through the Castleford system here and it took him a lot of years to get in the first team but I think that he is playing his best rugby now.”

Massey said: “I’m over the moon to get the contract sorted and over the line early in the season and I’m happy that the club wanted to retain me.

“I never wanted to go anywhere else. I’m almost like a piece of furniture now but I wouldn’t have it any other way.”
