Former NRL player now at Castleford given two-year contract extension for his good form

Jordan Tansey

It may not have worked out for Jordan Tansey in the NRL or at the Sydney Roosters and having moved around from a few clubs for various reasons, Tansey has finally seemed to find a place where he fits in and belongs – signing a new 2-year deal with the Castleford Tigers on the back of his good form for the club.

Tansey, who has played for the Leeds Rhinos and Hull FC in the past, signed an initial 12-month deal from the York City Knights, and since doing so, particularly this season, has been one of Castleford’s best players.

Castleford coach Ian Millward was one of the ones involved in giving Tansey an opportunity, and the coach was glad to see him take it.

“Jordan had been out of Super League for 12 months so he had a point to prove and we gave him the opportunity to do that,” said Millward.

“He had an incentive-based contract and he’s ticked all the boxes on and off the field. He’s an absolute joy to coach.”

Tansey is also excited at staying on with the club, believing that Castleford is a team moving in the right direction and that he wants to be a part of that moving forward.

“I think Cas are going places,” said Tansey.

“The team Basil’s putting together is pretty good. We’re not picking up the wins at the minute but it’s only early in the season and hopefully we can start getting those wins and try and make the play-offs which is our main goal for this season.”
