Webster rewarded with new Castleford deal

Updated: 

Jake Webster hopes to stay with Castleford Tigers for the rest of his career after signing a new one-year contract with the Super League leaders.

Webster has played a key role in the Tigers' rise to the top of the table and the former Melbourne Storm and Hull KR centre has been rewarded with a new deal, which includes the option of a further year.

"It's something that I've had in the back of my mind for a couple of years now. The club has been great to me and the fans are second to none." said Webster.

"They drive me to play the way that I do and I hope I can just be around them and this club until the end of my career."

Tigers head coach Daryl Powell said: "Jake has shown this season that he is still a very good player in all aspects of his performance.

"He is a much more durable athlete than he has been in the past and his skill sets and experience are a key part of our form so far this season. This new deal gives Jake a chance to continue to drive his standards and support the young players at our club."
