Ex-Castleford Tigers forward Jacques O’Neill to make Super League ground appearance this weekend

Jacques O’Neill will be making an appearance at a Super League ground this weekend following his exit from the Love Island villa.

O’Neill will be present at the Jungle tonight for Castleford Tigers’ big fixture against the Catalans Dragons – a team whom they beat barely a month ago in golden point.

For the former Castleford man, it will be a chance to reunite with the fans that once shouted his name from the rooftops at the Jungle.

In other news, O’Neill has been forced to issue a grovelling apology after being accused of bullying former Love Island contestants.

O’Neill wrote: “I just want to acknowledge the situation that’s happening right now and apologise if my behaviour has caused offence or been misinterpreted over the last few weeks.

“I genuinely have no bad feelings towards anyone and I’ve not meant for anything to come across that way at all. It was not my intention and I’m genuinely sorry if it has.

“Life has been overwhelming recently and admittedly I’ve probably not handled myself in the best possible way. I take full responsibility for my actions. I’m aware I’m far from perfect and that there is work that needs to be done on myself. I had my first therapy session on Monday which really took me out of my comfort zone.

“I know I have needed this for years but it’s only now I have decided to get help. I know it’s a step in the right direction for me even after just one session.

“I’m not asking for sympathy, I just want to acknowledge the situation and move forward as positively as I can. However, I know this can be used as an important lesson for me moving forward and over the coming years.

“I hope I can become the person I want to be and use this new platform to spread a positive message. I’m sorry to anyone that I have let down x”.
