Moors pens new deal

Junior Moors says he is delighted after putting pen-to-paper on a new two-year contract with Castleford.

Moors, who joined the Super League outfit ahead of the 2015 season from Melbourne Storm, has been a regular fixture in the first team since arriving at Wheldon Road.

The New Zealander made 18 appearances this season, scoring one try and being handed the man-of-the-match award on three occasions, and produced some brilliant performances to help the club stay in the top flight.

He is now tied to the Tigers until at least the end of the 2019 campaign and the new deal has been welcomed by the 30-year-old.

"I'm really happy to have extended my deal with Cas," Moors said. "My family and I are really settled here and I love playing with these boys."

Head coach Daryl Powell also expressed his delight at the extension and he believes Moors will continue to be an important player for the team.

"I'm delighted that Junior has agreed to extend his contract with the club," he said. "I have no doubt that he will continue to improve and we will see the very best of Junior Moors in the next few years."

Castleford ended up finishing fifth following the Super 8's stage and the club will be hoping to take the promising displays into the 2017 season as they aim to go one better and make the play-offs.
