CASTLEFORD Tigers have confirmed that Rangi Chase will remain a Tigers player for the 2013 season.
After a potential deal could not be concluded with Australian club St George Illawara, the Tigers were keen to have the matter resolved before the weekend.
Chief executive Steve Ferres has held talks with Chase today and it was mutually agreed that he would remain at the Castleford club.
Ferres said: “We are delighted that the situation has been resolved and we are looking forward to seeing him regain the form that led to him being crowned Man of Steel in 2011.
“Having spoken to Rangi he is happy to be staying at the club and is meeting with the Castleford physio today to assess his groin injury so he can be ready for the pre-season friendlies in January.”
