Ex-Castleford Tigers star Jacques O’Neill drops biggest hint on his future following Love Island exit

Jacques O’Neill seems to be the name that is on almost everyone’s lips in the rugby league fraternity at present.

After leaving the Love Island villa over a week ago, O’Neill has been doing a lot of social media posting and meeting up with friends as well as Love Island star Antigoni Buxton whom he has become good friends with.

The 23-year-old has signed up to The Social PR – the UK’s fastest growing Public Relations company – to be mentored with former Islander Scott Thomas which could see him become a millionaire.

Since his exit from the villa, the Cumbrian enforcer has been inundated with messages of support from far and wide, with his Instagram following burgeoning to over an incredible million as it stands this Monday.

Now that O’Neill’s following has hit a million, then he could earn as much as £10,000 per post for an endorsement! That figure is even more remarkable when considering that the former Castleford man had less than 10,000 followers before he went into the Love Island villa.

Such a popular figure will always be given offers to appear on other reality shows, but O’Neill has turned down the offer of £60,000 to go on Celebs Go Dating, according to the Daily Mail.

And, when asked about a potential return to the Castleford Tigers, head coach Lee Radford did not see a potential deal for the rest of 2022.

“He’s just out there spending cash,” Radford told BBC Radio Leeds.

“I spoke to him on Sunday, but it was just general chat really, a catch-up about the life of a superstar.

“We’ve not really spoke about him returning – he’s got an awful lot going on and I think what’s important is that he does everything while he can. I don’t know how long that will last.”

That being said, a deal may not come about at all if O’Neill’s Instagram profile is anything to go by – it now says ‘ex-professional rugby league player.’
