Former Manly and Roosters utility re-signs at Castleford

Luke Dorn

Although it has been some years since Luke Dorn played for the Manly Sea Eagles and Sydney Roosters, the name might yet ring a bell for them.

With 18 games to his name for Manly and just the one for the Roosters, Dorn has since made a successful transition into the Super League.

His success has culminated in an extensive stint with current side Castleford, where he has just re-signed a 1-year extension with the club.

The new deal will keep him in Castleford colours until the end of 2016 and with 141 tries from 221 Super League games, Dorn has shown how consistent he can be.

One of their best performers so far this season, the 32-year old said it was an easy decision to stay on board with the club.

“I am enjoying my time at Cas and it was a no-brainer for me,” said Dorn.

“I am just excited that I will continue to be part of what we have created here for another year.”

The club are also pleased to hold onto the veteran utility, knowing that despite his age, he is still a valuable player for the Castleford side.

“I’m delighted that Luke has agreed to stay at the club for another year,” said Castleford coach, Daryl Powell.

“He has shown again this season what a pivotal figure he is for the team when he’s playing well and I’m sure he will continue to do that for the next two years at least.

“His speed in attack has been outstanding and his voice within the group has been a big contributing factor to our improvement as a team.”
