Ex-Castleford Tigers star’s farewell to Featherstone Rovers as he makes move to Championship rival

For five seasons in Super League, Jesse Sene-Lefao was one of the most dangerous and exciting forwards in the competition.

Capable of playing front row and second-row, he joined Castleford in 2017 and helped guide the Tigers to top spot with 25 wins from 30 league games setting a new record for points between first and second place in Super League.

The Tigers lost only seven games throughout the entire campaign with their Challenge Cup run ending against eventual winners Hull FC in the quarter-finals whilst crucially one of those seven defeats came at Old Trafford where the Tigers came up short in the Grand Final against Leeds Rhinos.

That was his first season at the Jungle, in his last he would lose the Challenge Cup Final against St Helens prior to moving down the road to Featherstone Rovers.

However, once again the forward was forced to taste defeat in a final this time losing the 1895 Cup Final to Leigh at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

That was a disappointing moment in a year hit for injury with the forward ultimately leaving Post Office Road as he takes up a two-year deal with Sheffield Eagles which was announced yesterday.

Sene-Lefao has now reflected on his time at the club saying on social media: “I’ve definitely come out of my time at Featherstone a better person and I have had the opportunity to mee some awesome people along the way.

“I loved everything about my time at the club and it has been an absolute honour to pull on the jersey and I would like to say thank you to the blue wall for all their support throughout the last year.”
