Massey commits to Tigers
Castleford Tigers forward Nathan Massey has pledged his future to the club after penning a new two-year deal.
The 29-year-old, who has been with the club since the age of 15, was into the final year of his current deal, but his performances have prompted the Tigers to extend it.
The one-club man is now set to stay with the Super League side until the end of the 2021 season, much to the delight of all involved.
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.”
Meanwhile, Massey also revealed his delight when adding: “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.”
