Castleford Tigers have announced Jordan Turner has agreed to a two-year contract extension, keeping him at the Club until the end of the 2023 season.
Turner has had a terrific start to his time with the Tigers, making eight appearances and scoring seven tries in the process. Overall, he has made over 300 top-flight appearances for Castleford, Huddersfield Giants, St Helens, Hull FC and Salford City Reds.
In the opening stages of the season the Oldham-born player has shown his versatility by playing in a number of positions.
Reacting to the news, he said: “Although it’s been short for the past five or six months, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time and I’m delighted to be on board for the next two years. I think there are some exciting times to come.
“With it being my testimonial year and the World Cup coming up at the end of the year too, we’ve got some big games coming up in the next few weeks, obviously I would love to get a Challenge Cup final win under my belt. Later, in the year we want to be contending for the Grand Final, on the back of that there’s my testimonial game.”
“I like being able to be the person that the coaching staff depend on when they’ve got holes in the squad that they can’t really fill and that has been my role for a number of years now, it’s something that I think I’m quite good at.”
Incoming Castleford Head Coach Lee Radford added: “Jordan is a great bloke and I have a really good relationship with him so, I’m delighted to get his extension over the line.
“He seems to have found an extra gear with Castleford and I’m hoping I can continue that, and that I can further nurture that as well because he has been in brilliant form at the start of this year.”
