Ex-Castleford Tigers star Rangi Chase set to make first-ever broadcast appearance

Rangi Chase has been famous for his product on the rugby league field, rather than off it.

And, after an illustrious career spanning over a decade in Super League for the likes of Castleford Tigers, Salford Red Devils and Widnes Vikings, he will now turn his hand to a different part of rugby league.

Chase will be starring on BBC West Yorkshire Sport for tonight’s West Yorkshire derby between Wakefield Trinity and Leeds Rhinos alongside Matt Horton.

The current Rochdale Hornets halfback tweeted: “Look forward to my first time doing radio.”

The 2011 Man of Steel burst onto the scene in Super League with Castleford Tigers, scoring 47 tries in 129 appearances for the club between 2009 and 2014.

From there, he made a high-profile move to Salford Red Devils where he spent two seasons before a short spell at Leigh Centurions came about.

Like the prodigal son, Chase returned to the Jungle with Castleford in 2016, registering an extra seven appearances.

The 35-year-old left for Widnes Vikings on-loan before signing permanently and then enjoyed spells at Doncaster, West Wales Raiders and now Rochdale.

Chase, of course, represented England eight times between 2011 and 2013 as well as the New Zealand Maori side between 2008 and 2010.
