Jacob Emmitt has agreed a new deal with Castleford which will keep him at the club until the end of 2014.
Emmitt has expressed his delight to be committing his future to the Tigers.
He said: “Basil (Ian Millward) has things going in the right direction, he’s looking at bringing the right people into the team and I’m really happy here. There was never much doubt about me staying.
“I’m glad I can now concentrate on moving forward and hopefully having a successful year.”
Having won the club’s Forward of the Year Award, Emmitt joined Castleford after appearing in a Grand Final with St Helens in 2010.
Millward said: “We’re really excited to Jake. He plays good minutes, is always developing his game and is only 23 years of age.
“It’s a big plus for the club moving forward and for the rest of the season.”
