Castleford Tigers have triggered a one-year extension of George Griffin’s contract, keeping him at the Club for the 2022 season.
The versatile forward joined the Tigers ahead of the 2020 season from Salford Red Devils. He has made 16 appearances so far, and could make his 150th career appearance this weekend against Leeds Rhinos.
Reacting to the news, he said: “I’m over the moon, I am really happy here so to get my extra year is something I was looking forward to, pen to paper now so it’s sorted.
“The way the Club is run, I get along really well with the boys here, it’s pretty local to all my family and I think I just fit into the mould of the Club quite well and the way we play.
“Obviously, there’s a few changes to staff next year but that just brings another dynamic and a new challenge ahead.”
Incoming Head Coach Lee Radford added: “I’ve obviously had the pleasure of working with George’s brother for a while and have a good relationship with him.
“I’ve previously had an interest in George when I was at Hull and to finally be able to work with him, I’m really looking forward to that.
“A real solid player, up and down, and what you see is what you get.”
