Castleford half-back Liam Finn has signed a two-year contract extension.
Finn, 30, joined the club in the close season from Featherstone and has contributed 13 try assists in 11 appearances for the Tigers so far.
He said: “I came to Castleford initially for one year to try and take the opportunity and see where it took me so for the club to want to keep me for a bit longer is pleasing,” Finn said.
“It’s pleasing that I’ve managed to do a good enough job to earn a new contract and hopefully I can kick on and establish myself as a Super League player.”
Finn is now committed until the end of 2016, and his new deal also includes an option for the club to extend his stay for a further year.
The former Halifax and Wakefield man, who captained Ireland at the recent World Cup, was no stranger to Tigers coach Daryl Powell, having captained Powell’s successful Featherstone side for almost four years.
Powell said: “I’m delighted that Liam has signed a new contract to stay with the club after an outstanding season for him to date.
“His organisation abilities are superb, alongside his leadership qualities and deep understanding of the game.
“He has adapted to life in Super League very well and I am confident there are even better things to come from him in the future.”
