Castleford Tigers star and former teammate go above and beyond for mental health

Not long ago, four men with deep connections with Castleford Tigers decided they wanted to do their bit to raise awareness about the importance of mental health.

Then they were either current of former Tigers players in the shape of Jesse Sene-Lefao who left to go to Featherstone Rovers and is expected to join Sheffield Eagles in 2023, now Warrington Wolves centre Peter Mata’utia, 38-year-old veteran Quentin Laulu-Togagae – the father of Hull KR youngster Phoenix – and current Castleford Tigers and former Huddersfield Giants prop Suaia Matagi.

The quartet decided to start a podcast called Talk Your Walk to open up on their own mental health battles to show their listeners the importance of mental health and opening up.

They have continued to go above and beyond and this week delivered talks in prison.

This was revealed on their YouTube channel with QLT and Matagi revealing their nervousness and ambition before delivering the talks.

“Just walking up to the prison where we’re going to do a few talks. We’re just getting ready for our talk. Before we even started Talk Your Walk, this was the dream.

“This is a significant day and we’re looking forward to it and hoping to make an impact.

“It’s always daunting but like anything it’s about thinking about the big why and adding the value.”

The two couldn’t be joined by Mata’utia and Sene-Lefao with the two presently on holiday.

It’s another remember of how good the stars of Super League are to the wider wider community through their experiences and their roles as role models.
