Ex-Castleford Tigers forward Jacques O’Neill reportedly set to return to Super League

Former Castleford Tigers star Jacques O’Neill is no longer a Love Island contestant – that much is true.

But, where his next destination lies is a whole other question.

For the past month, the former Castleford Tigers star has been on ITV2’s Love Island having been released from his rugby league contract to pursue other opportunities.

Since then, O’Neill was coupled together with Welsh wonder Paige, though their relationship was getting strained in recent days following Jacques’ antics in the infamous Casa Amor saga where he was exposed to six different girls for three days.

The 23-year-old had not closed the door on a return to rugby league and potentially Castleford after hinting with Paige that he would work things out around his career, but it appears as though O’Neill could be heading in a different direction.

With a photo on his Instagram feed, which was been looked after by ex-Tigers teammate Larne Patrick, O’Neill has been snapped up by modelling agency FOMO Models which could suggest that is the route he may go down now his Love Island experience is over.

However, Sky Sports has revealed that O’Neill could be offered a return to rugby league after the former Castleford Tigers hooker decided to leave reality TV show ‘Love Island’.

The Super League side has not made a further comment on whether O’Neill can resume his Castleford after it was confirmed the 23-year-old had exited the show, according to Sky Sports, but it would be interesting to see whether or not the nuggety Cumbrian could resume his carer at the Jungle just a month after leaving to ‘pursue other opportunities’.

O’Neill has come under fire in recent days for his actions in the Love Island villa, first ‘exploring other options’ whilst coupled up with Paige and then being involved in a fiery dust-up with new man Adam Collard which will be aired tonight.
