Club sign up forward that “every Super League side was interested in”

Super League Castleford Tigers Sam Hall

Castleford Tigers have continued their streak of re-signing players with confirmation that Sam Hall has penned a new deal to remain with the Super League side.

Hall’s signature marks the third in the past week with youngsters Jason Qareqare and forward George Hill both signing deals of late. All three players have been part of the team’s youth system with the club seeming to put an emphasis on their rising stars.

Whilst George Hill was tied down for three years with the option for a fourth in the club’s favour, both Jason Qareqare and Sam Hall have penned new two-year deals at The Jungle which means they’ll remain at the club until the end of the 2026 season.

The 22-year-old forward Hall has played in ten of Castleford’s eleven Super League games this season whilst also featuring in the Challenge Cup win over Batley Bulldogs. Those eleven appearances in 2024 add to his 16 last season for the club, with Hall debuting way back in 2020.

His signature has been seen as a highly-prized one by those at Castleford Tigers with Head of Rugby Danny Wilson explaining why as part of the club’s announcement that a new deal had been sorted.

Having proudly announced that Hall had penned a new two-year deal, the club’s statement detailed his accolades in Castleford colours before Danny Wilson spoke about how important retaining Hall was.

Their statement read: “Another product of the Castleford Tigers Youth System, Sam Hall signed for The Tigers Scholarship at 14. Working his way through the Tigers ranks, Hall featured in our Academy side before making his Super League debut at 17 against Wigan Warriors. Hall scored his first points for Cas in 2023 as he dived over against Warrington Wolves.”

Just as he had for the signings of Qareqare and Hill, Wilson beamed about the new deal for Sam Hall whilst also claiming that “every Super League club was interested” in the 22-year-old.

Wilson said: “Sam Hall is a very talented player, he’s young, English and a middle and with that it attracts a lot of attention. Every Super League club was interested in Sam Hall, he’s got a big future in the game and we hope he stays long-term at Castleford and we’re very excited that he’s committed his future with the club and he’ll continue to excel in Super League. It’s a big achievement for us to get Sam Hall tied down at a club he loves.”

“Before we even came to Castleford we knew about Sammy Hall and the good work the club had done at that time with a lot of players. Sam Hall stood out and what he lacked sometimes was opportunity. As he’s matured in age, he’s gotten those opportunities and taken them very well and there’s a lot more to come with Sam Hall.”
