Castleford utility back Jordan Tansey has agreed a two-year contract extension with the club.

The 26-year-old former Leeds and Hull player, who signed a 12-month deal when he joined the Tigers from Championship club York last year, has impressed this season.

"Jordan had been out of Super League for 12 months so he had a point to prove and we gave him the opportunity to do that," said coach Ian Millward.

"He had an incentive-based contract and he's ticked all the boxes on and off the field. He's an absolute joy to coach."

Tansey, who also had a brief spell in Australia with Sydney Roosters in 2009, said: "I think Cas are going places.

"The team Basil's (Millward) putting together is pretty good. We're not picking up the wins at the minute but it's only early in the season and hopefully we can start getting those wins and try and make the play-offs which is our main goal for this season."

Castleford are currently 13th in the Super League table with three points from eight games.
