Jesse Sene-Lefao signs new deal at Castleford

Jesse Sene-Lefao has signed a three-year contract extension with Castleford, keeping him at the Tigers until the end of the 2021 season.

The 28-year-old joined the Tigers ahead of the 2017 season and quickly became a fan favourite at the Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

Sene-Lefao was the only Tigers player to play every single game in their League Leaders Shield winning campaign.

And the Samoa international is delighted to have extended his stay at Castleford.

He said: “I’m exciting about my future here! Me and my family are ready to take on the next three years here at Castleford.

“We landed here last year and it felt like home straight away. The amount of support we get from everyone from the town, the fans, the staff and the coaches at Castleford has been fantastic. I can’t wait to get back out there and see all those smiling faces.”

Tigers head coach, Daryl Powell, is over the moon to see the forward sign a contract extension.

He added: “I’m delighted that Jesse has agreed a new deal to stay at the club.

“He has been a quality addition to our squad and has further improvement in him moving forward.

“His enthusiasm is outstanding and I’m looking forward to working with him over the next three years.”
