“I am really happy here” – George Griffin on extending Castleford stay

Castleford have triggered a one-year extension of forward George Griffin’s contract, keeping him at the club until the end of 2022.

The 28-year-old prop or second rower is in his second season with the Tigers after joining from Salford and is set to make his 150th Super League appearance in Friday’s game against Leeds.

Griffin said: “I’m over the moon, I am really happy here so to get my extra year is something I was looking forward to, pen to paper now so it’s sorted.

“The way the club is run, I get along really well with the boys here, it’s pretty local to all my family and I think I just fit into the mould of the club quite well and the way we play.

“Obviously, there’s a few changes to staff next year but that just brings another dynamic and a new challenge ahead.”

Lee Radford, who will take over as Castleford head coach from 2022, said: “I’ve obviously had the pleasure of working with George’s brother for a while and have a good relationship with him.

“I’ve previously had an interest in George when I was at Hull and to finally be able to work with him, I’m really looking forward to that.

“A real solid player, up and down, and what you see is what you get.”
