Castleford forward Tyla Hepi has signed a new contract which will keep him at the club for a further two years.
“I’ve got my house here and have some good friends in the community. We are a pretty tight-knit group at Cas. I am really excited to crack on for another two years and really start pushing to make a name for myself.
“I am very eager and working really hard. Next year I am going to be relentless in going for that starting spot. I have been here two years now and have set a solid foundation. So for me it is time to crack on.”
Castleford’s new coach Lee Radford said: “Tyla plays with a really good energy. I like what he does and what he brings to the team.
“I actually played with his dad which is a sign of my age! He’s a real honest working front-rower and one I am really looking forward to coaching.”
