Jake Trueman says he is very pleased to have signed a new four-year-contract with Castleford Tigers. The young half-back has penned an extension to remain at Wheldon Road until the end of 2022 after being named the Super League Young Player of the Year for last season.
He had already signed a three-year-deal at the beginning of the campaign and has been further rewarded for his impressive performances in 2018, often filling in for injured star man Luke Gale.
He said: “I’m very happy to get this new deal over the line. “I now have my future for the next four years all sorted so I can now just focus on my rugby. “When the offer got put in front of me I just could not turn the chance to extend my stay even longer here at Castleford.
“I got my opportunity this year because of a couple of injuries but my focus now is getting back into the team in 2019, we have some talented halfbacks in the team so competition for places is high.”
