Chase stays with Castleford

Rangi Chase has signed a new one-year deal with Castleford for the 2017 season, with a club option to extend for a further year.

Chase rejoined the club in July this year after stints with Salford and Leigh.

Chase said: “I feel good, It’s really good to come back! This year was about playing to see if the club wanted to keep me and I am over the moon.

“I’ve had some good times here and it’s good to come back to a group that is capable of winning something in these next few years.

“We have a strong group of players and the club has turned around a lot from when I was last here.”

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell believes Rangi has done enough to earn himself the new deal

“I am really pleased to retain Rangi for next season,” Powell said.

“He has fitted back into the club well and there is so much more to come from him. He has been out of the game for a while so his fitness levels need a pre season but he has shown in his brief time back that there is still the talent and ability there.

“I am looking forward to seeing him grow into the way we play during pre season and I am very confident he will be part of an awesome attacking threat for us next year and beyond.”
