The Castleford Tigers can confirm that Rangi Chase will be a Tigers player for the 2013 season.
After a potential deal couldn't be concluded with NRL club the St George Illawarra Dragons, the Tigers were keen to have the matter resolved before the weekend. CEO Steve Ferres has held talks with Chase today and it was mutually agreed that he would remain at the Castleford club.

"We are delighted that the situation has been resolved and we are looking forward to seeing him regain the form that led to him being crowned Man of Steel in 2011," Ferres said.
"Having spoken to Rangi he is happy to be staying at the club and is meeting with the Castleford physio today to assess his groin injury so he can be ready for the pre-season friendlies in January."
