Powerful forward Junior Moors has signed a further contract extension to stay with Castleford Tigers until the end of 2020.

Moors joined the Tigers ahead for he 2015 season and has been a big hit with his hard running and strong aggressive tackling style.

The Samoan international, who could return from injury next week, plays a key role for the Tigers with head coach Daryl Powell delighted to have secured his services further.

He said: “Junior Moors is a high-quality player who has continued to get better during his time at the club.

“His ability as a ball player in the middle of the field is outstanding, as is his ball-carrying strength.

“The fact that our best players continue to extend their contracts is a huge compliment to the club and it’s direction at the moment.

“Junior’s extension shows this again and I am so pleased I will be able to work with him on a continued basis.”

Moors was already contracted for the 2018 and 2019 season but Castleford have now added the 2020 season to his deal and Moors is pleased to be staying an extra year.

He said: “I’m over the moon. I’ve really enjoyed my time here. We have a great bunch of blokes here at Castleford and great coaching staff so it was a really easy decision to make.”
